I have a content type that has a field that will take pdf and .doc/docx files.  I am use the file field.  Here is what I just noticed and have not been able to fix today.  

When say my file testfile.pdf is uploaded and a say the user make an update to the file and uploads it again, instead of the original file testfile.pdf being overwritten, a second file, testfile_1.pdf is created.  

I don't see anything in the file upload gui that allows me to select overwrite instead of add another.  

Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
