File rename when file already exists on server

Is there a way to change the behaviour of what happens when you copy a file to the server and it finds the file is already there?
Specifically - instead of renaming the NEW file file(2) etc. is there a way to rename the original file?

So, Im working on index.php... say.
I copy the file up there and it renames the existing index.php to index(2).php and then copies my file to index.php - that would allow web developers to update files whilst keeping the originals in a backup 'trail'. I don't quite see any use for the existing behaviour!!!


Thanks,
Gerald

Hello Gerald ..

No this is not possible. SmartFTP's behavior is the same as in Windows Vista, Windows 2008 and Windows 7.
