move files and overwrite existing?

Many apologies if this has been covered elsewhere but I haven't been able to find a definitive answer yet: is it possible to force foobar to overwrite existing files during a move/copy files operation, instead of generating an error list?

If the issue is unclear here is my usage scenario: recently-obtained files sit in a holding folder until gain/tag info has been adjusted, then I send them to my main music folder with a set naming scheme. I have some updated files with which I want to replace older copies via the "move" command, but upon so doing I get an error that "object already exists" for the files that I want to replace. Rather than use Explorer to manually delete the extant files I'm hoping foobar can do it automatically.

Thanks for any input.
