Default Overwrite Files in Use

I would like to overwrite a file (via rendering) that is being referenced by my reaper session - but Reaper throws an error and doesn't render;

But, is this actually possible in Reaper somehow?

IE. Render a region to file with option: "Add rendered items to new tracks in project" -> add a fade to the end of the rendered/imported file region -> Make changes to audio in the source region; Render again; Render to File > Render Warning "Overwrite" > ERROR: The target drive/path does not exist, is unavailable, or is in use.

This workflow is very desirable in sample / SFX creation.

I'm aware of the work around using sub projects; I'd love to do this w/o sub projects.

Thanks!
