The file <filename> already exists. Do you want to replace it?

What happened

You tried to give the attached file you're saving through HCL Notes®, or otherwise saving through your operating system, the same name as a file that's already in the destination directory.

What you can do

Click Replace or Cancel.

  • Replace - Saves the file, overwriting the existing file.
  • Cancel - Does not save the file, and returns to the dialog box that was open.

    If you click Cancel, you can change the name of the file that's already in your destination directory so you don't overwrite it, then save the file; or, you can enter a different name for the file you're saving.
