Output file replacement by re-running the commands?

Hi friends!
I have got a basic question in qiime2 that is as follows:
When i re-run the same command in the same directory, then what happened to the previous output files? Do they replaced with new output files automatically?

good luck!

Hi @sajjad.sarikhan,
Yes, files are overwritten automatically if you use the same path name for an output of any QIIME 2 action. However, most QIIME 2 actions can instead write unspecified output files to an --output-dir, which will not be overwritten if it already exists.

I hope that helps.
