Red face Overwriting a file

Please Login to Remove!

I get updated files emailed to me and I want to overwrite the file that's already saved on my media card. The only options the Blackberry gives me are to Rename or Cancel. It won't let me overwrite the file. I've been browsing different file management apps but am not finding anything that will allow overwriting. help?

Default Re: Overwriting a file

It would be easier to give you specific instructiions if you update your profile to include the OS version you have on your BlackBerry.

However, some where in your media applications, in the Media folder for later OS releases, on in one of the media applications in earlier versions, you should find a menu option called Explore that will launch a file explorer that will provide a full set of commands, including delete. BlackBerry core applications tend to be very (perhaps over) protective of data.

Default Re: Overwriting a file

i believe the version is 5.0.0.975. However, we've got multiple guys in the field with multiple versions that are trying to do the same thing. I do know how to delete a file first then resave it. It just seems like it would be simplier if you could just overwrite it on the phone like you can from a PC.
Are there any other phones that would do this easier?

Android 2.2 (Froyo) does re-writes. The email clients all suck, but it does re-writes.
