Question:
When overwriting files that currently exist, does the Agent perform a delete?
Answer:
in a JOBF, when you select 'Overwrite' for 'If file exists at destination', we do check for existence of the target, if found, we do a delete, and open the destination as a new file for write. This ensures we always write to the correct destination - and don't interfere with reading processes - as all file systems should be able to handle this default situation.
