Open DB Manager and try to export to vector file one of the tables of the database;
In the opening dialog, there's an option labelled "Drop existing one". What's it about?
I think it's about deletion of the to-be-exported table (I'm not sure though), but i think it should be better labelled or have an informative text while hovering.

- Target version changed from Future Release - High Priority to Future Release - Lower Priority
- Status changed from Open to Feedback
- Priority changed from Normal to Low
Somehow duplicated of #12961. The text was replaced with proposed "Replace existing table" one.
BTW if we are exporting the selected table to file (instead of to a different database), that text is meaningless...
It must be changed to something like "Overwrite destination (if exists)".
