I'm probably blind, but is there a way to overwrite existing files that have been uploaded in Files & Images? Attempting to upload a same named file simply creates a -2 named file, and as far as I can tell there's no other way of uploading...

I have a project where I need to upload text content to some pages of an unfinished site, while developing the rest of it. My concern is that when i update the site, will I overwrite all my content. Is there a way I can prevent this?

Thank you in advance!
