Replace file feature for fal file list
Actually I use TYPO3 4.7 with DAM because of the need of the feature, a button to replace a file (new file upload, gets renamed to old filename on the server). Neither TYPO3 6.2 has this feature yet, nor the media extension.
[!!!][FEATURE] Replace file feature for FAL file listProvides a new button "replace" at the extended view in FAL equal to
DAM. Its possible to replace a file
- with a new one -> old file will be overwritten; identifier of the file
object will be kept
- with a new one -> old file will be deleted; identifier of the file
object will be changed to the new filename
The file replacing also respects unique filenames.
To allow editors to replace files the need the "Files: Replace"
permissing needs to be set.

Yes, but the problem is that the filename on the client is different (e.g. there is a version number in the filename). But the filename on the internet should be clean (good name without versions, person names etc.). If the editors first have to rename the file before uploading, they will make mistakes.
