Error: Cannot create 'filename' because another file exists with the same name

​​​Cannot create "filename" because another file exists with the same name

Answer:

 
This error occurs because MigrationWiz attempted to migrate a file with a name that already exists at the Destination. The Destination environment doesn't support multiple files sharing the same name.

 
You can either:
 
  • Rename the file in error at the Source to prevent the duplicate file name.

OR

  • Activate the Advanced Option RenameConflictingFiles=1 to automatically rename conflicting files. This option will rename the files by adding a unique hash at the end of the original filename.
You will need to reset the statistics of your item(s) as described in KB005101 before you resubmit the migration.

 
Review KB005100 to learn how to set an Advanced Support Option​ for your project or item(s).​
