From the MRTG-homepage:

Changes 2.17.2, 2011-02-20
From: Tobi
* can not replace a file by renaming another to its name under WIN32
fix in rateup #104

It seems it took Tobi Oetiker, author of MRTG, two iterations to get
this bug fixed. No more error messages now with version 2.17.2,

Just FYI

Amazes me that in /any/ operating system you can simply overwrite an existing file by doing the operation:

rename <my-new-file> <your-existing-file>

Oh, well!

Thanks for the info.
