#12375 new Bug report

Unable to 'mv' with overwrite

Reported by: m.avogadro Owned by:

Operating system version:



it seems that v3.52.0.5 is unable to move (rename) a file when a file with same name exists in the destination directory. This is the error:

Error: mv /source/directory/TESTFILE /destination/directory/TESTFILE: received failure with description 'Failure'

TESTFILE is an empty text file; /destination/directory already contained a file named TESTFILE.

Trying the same operation with sftp CLI (rename /source/directory/TESTFILE /destination/directory/TESTFILE) the operation succeeds.

Optimal would be asking whether overwrite or not, which neither the sftp command does; 'Failure' looks like a bug to me.
