Object Storage - enforce unique name?

When uploading different files with the same name, the original file gets overwritten. Is it a way to prevent that please?

Hey @alany - I tried this out by uploading files via the Cloud Manager, and there's a warning that pops up when I try to upload files with the same name:

This file already exists. Are you sure you want to overwrite it?

With the warning, I only had the options to either "Cancel" the upload or "Replace" the file. This should help keep the original file from being overwritten by accident.

Thanks for trying it out @jdutton. I was hoping it could allow the upload without replacing the original file.
But it probably makes sense to handle the file names on my side before it reaches linode…
