Bringing back file overwriting

Update 2.8.0 eliminated the ability to overwrite files in the media browser when uploading a new version. How can I change this? It’s really annoying when I’m uploading a group of PDFs or images and some are skipped because they already existed.


2.8.1 has a upload_check_exists system setting

Awesome! So setting this to ‘No’ will restore the old functionality? Are there any specific downsides to doing this which merited doing this in the first place?
