Hi ange,

Usually a message will open asking if you want to overwrite files if you are uploading files that have the same name. For example, if you have uploaded a file called 'picture1.jpg' and then try to upload another file called 'picture1.jpg' it will ask you if you would like to replace the first one with the second one.

You can change the names of your files on your computer before you upload them to your site.

Please let us know if this doesn't answer your question or help your problem.
