File Management - Overwriting Old Files

Greetings: I have several pdf documents uploaded to my file management. The files are linked to throughout my site. Each year, I will have updated versions of these documents. Is it possible to replace an old file with a new one through the CMS file manager? I've looked but I don't see one. I'd like to figure out a way to upload the current version of the file in place of the old one without having to go and reset all of my links. What is the best way to do this through the CMS? Thanks.

How about ?

If no versioning is required, FTP should suffice provided your file names do not change. But you look for a CMS method…

Thank you. Given the computer abilities of the person that will ultimately be updating the site's basic content, I'd like to find a solution through the CMS as I think ftp may be a confusing step for them.

Thank you! This definitely has potential.
