Yes, you can control how this works by using the "mode" parameter when uploading files. That mode value should be a WriteMode. One of the write modes is "overwrite", though "update" is reccomended, as it's safer. With "overwrite" it's easy to accidentally/unintentionally overwrite new changes you didn't mean to.
