U4-6637 - Creating Partial View in back office with existing name overwrites existing partial

Created by Anthony Chudley 19 May 2015, 13:51:31 Updated by Shannon Deminick 26 Jun 2017, 07:11:21

If you create a new Partial View with the same name as an existing Partial View using the Umbraco back office it automatically overwrites the existing partila.

Steps to recreate: *In the back office create Partial View with any name (e.g testPartialView) *Add code to testPartialView and save. *In the back office create Partial View with same name (e.g testPartialView) *No prompt or warning. File overwritten with new.

Expected: Preferably stop the new partial from being created as it already exists. Or add prompt to warn user allowing them to continue but with warning of the affect.
