    Arc Media does not operate like the normal file system.


    I have lots of media files stored in Arc Media that have links in a Canvas shell.


    when running a new version of a course, I want to update the videos, but if I upload a new video with the same name it does not replace it.  Instead, I end up with files with duplicate names.  This makes it very difficult to upgrade course content.


    I end up having to delete the old version, upload a new one, find where it is linked from and update any links to the video.


    I tried Canvas support, but they suggested I put it up as a new feature request.
