Move a folder/file and rewrite on destination if exists.

Explorer | Level 3

Hi. Is there any way to move a folder A to a destination folder B, and overwrite the folder on destination B if folder A already exists? Using the move_v2 feature is returned conflict error (http 409). I was not wanting to have to check and delete before copying.

No, unfortunately the move API call doesn't currently offer a way to set the write mode (e.g., 'overwrite' in this case), but I'll pass this along as a feature request.
