I came across an unexpected behaviour in Magento 2.3 Adminhtml area. Uploading an image with the same name of another already present in the upload category folder replaces the old the one with new uploaded one. I thought that the new one was renamed example: "same_name_1.jpg", but this does not happen.

Anyone is experiencing this behaviour? Should I change some settings in the backend?

  • which specific admin area you experience this issue?

    I have tried also in my local machine, it only rewrites on tmp>catalog during upload of images but after save, the image will as is and when you try to upload the same image with the same name and the same size it will retain the current image but if you upload with the same name but different size it will overwrite
