Subject [jira] [Created] (IO-402) [IO] copyFileToDirectory - Over-Write File
Date Thu, 24 Oct 2013 23:57:02 GMT
BELUGA BEHR created IO-402:

             Summary: [IO] copyFileToDirectory - Over-Write File
                 Key: IO-402
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Utilities
    Affects Versions: 2.4
            Reporter: BELUGA BEHR
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.5

I came across a small annoyance at work today.  I have code that takes a file and copies it
to a mounted directory on a remote server.  I am using FileUtils.copyFileToDirectory() to
do the move, but it does not have an overwrite flag.  If something goes wrong with the file
transfer over the network, and only part of the file is transferred, all subsequent attempts
are blocked by the fact that the file "already exists."  I would like to see another overloaded
copyFileToDirectory() method with a flag to overwrite the file if it already exists.  The
current behavior is to throw an IoException.
