tdf#60237 - correct the behaviour of the Overwrite property
If the Overwrite property of the MediaDescriptor is set to false, try to write the file before trying to rename or copy it. If the file already exists, raise an error (ERRCODE_IO_ALREADYEXISTS). In addition, the documentation about the default option was corrected. Change-Id: I1031dca3a039343fc599d194fcaa99a20dd13e2a Reviewed-on: Tested-by: Jenkins Reviewed-by: Miklos Vajna <>
