Target file already exist when uploading


When I upload a file backup for my xenForo installation to my FTP server I get a message that one of the files already exist. That seems a bit strange to me when I have deleted the whole community folder. Any ideas why this is happening?

Sometimes an individual file will fail to upload, triggering a retry by the client, but the file already exists on the server from the first attempt.
