Item4514: Deleting attachment results with: "Attachment already exists in new topic"
|| Trash, TopicAttachment
When my user deletes an attachment, he gets "Attachment already exists in new topic". Investigation finds that an attachment by that name already exists in the TrashAttachment
My workaround is to delete the old attachment permanently from the filesystem, and editing the metadata files.
Suggest that attachment files can be renamed automatically when a conflict happens. I understand that this would probably open a big can of worms...

Setting this as enhancement.

This thing can really slow things down during starting of a new twiki when you delete a lot of stuff

I think the delete action should take different action than moving. When you delete the deleted item should be renamed if there is a name clash by appending _1 _2 _3 etc. Same with deleting topics.
This is more a bug than an enhancement because it should never be impossible to delete a topic or an attachment. But with low priority. Can easily wait to 5.0

I got around it by deleting the pub/Trash and data/Trash directories and then copying the originals from the TWiki-4.1.2.tgz archive (warning: completely empties the trash).
