Force file overwrite

I'm using this to write images to the server

 Request.Files[IntLoop].SaveAs(Server.MapPath(".\\hotels\\hotel_images\\" + hotelid + "_"+ (IntLoop + 1) + "." + exts));

How can I force it to overwrite the image if exists, I keep getting
The process cannot access the file ....

you also made need to see if the file is read-only...

I wonder if there is a flag to do the overwrite....

There is full access to the folder, when the image doesnt exist in the first place its fine, messing around I did a delete first if the image existed followed by a sleep before writing the new image - but this is impractical
As Kev said there must be some flag, in vb you add True to the end of the argument, but this doesnt work in c#

After some testing the problem seems to lie in the getimage.aspx, when I remove the call to this page the uploading works fine, but I can't see what the problem is with this file, everything is disposed etc

You can get the full script at
