Overwriting the files in SharePoint library ask for add file confirmation the number of files you upload instead of one button click

Hi ,
I have a query in file uploading in SharePoint online.
Query: Overwriting the files in SharePoint library ask for add file confirmation the number of files you upload instead of one button click
Earlier, when we used to overwrite the existing documents in SharePoint library we used to click on one" Add files" button only once for upload confirmation of n number of files we are overwriting.
But now, when we do bulk upload of existing files, we are asked to click on "Add file" button for confirmation for each file we are uploading.
Want to know the reason behind this, has there any changes rolled out in Microsoft, if so then when?

Hello @MadhuriKamble-0542 ,

In my test, I cannot reproduce your operation. I click on one "Choose Files" button only once to overwrite multiple files.

Can you provide your screenshots? This can better let us understand and solve the problem.

HI @EchoDu-MSFT,
Try to use modern document library.

Hi @MadhuriKamble-0542 ,

This is aimed at the improvement of the SharePoint Online modern experience, so that it can better facilitate the user to manage documents.

For example:

1) Prevent users add the same files to the Document library to ensure the uniqueness of the document.

2) Ensure the reliability of document properties (columns). Because even if you upload the same file, the "Modified" is different every time.
