Question Issue with Drive Web page uploads.

I have started using Drive for remote access via the drive webpage and have one issue. When I upload a folder I would like it to overwrite the original folder with the one that I am uploading. It seems that drive may not do this, it seems to add a (2) number to the folder name and won't overwrite the original folder. See screenshot. Anyone know how to change this behavior or is this the way it works and it can't be changed?

It's the way it works I guess. Funny thing is that the old File Manager app does have this option, but the annoying thing about that it was asking via a popup everytime..
Yes, that is what my testing is showing. It is strange! I wish this could be managed in the drive software as an option. Maybe someone out there knows more?
