Description

Well, similar to the mirror handline and corresponding advanced settings for that, please add settings for the "file already exists" check, for reasons, read the linked threads.

Summary:
-Users complain because they get (reconnect) waittimes because JD needs to start the downloadprocess just to find out that a file already exists.

Of course I know, we have this behavior to make sure that the existing file and the new one really match but still, users should be able to configure this behavior via advanced setting e.g. to avoid the described scenario.
