If the "Overwrite existing files" option to be turned off for all uploads, You can Locate these lines and Change the Checked="true" to Checked="false" in Uploadex.aspx file as below:
  1. <asp:CheckBox id="OverwriteSingle" Checked="true" Text=<%$Resources:wss,upload_document_Overwrite_file%>" runat="server" />
  2. <asp:CheckBox id="OverwriteMultiple" Checked="true" Text=<%$Resources:wss,upload_document_Overwrite_version%>" runat="server" />
Alternatively, Lets set this option only for specific site. 
  • Login to your SharePoint Web Front End Server, Navigate to: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\template\layouts" folder
  • Make a backup of "Uploadex.aspx" file and open it in Notepad.
  • Search for text </asp:Content> from the top and Insert the below code in it.
  • <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
     $(document).ready( function () {
     if(location.href.indexOf('globalfunctions/credit/_layouts/Upload.aspx') >= 0) {
  • Save and close the uploadex.aspx file. Repeat these steps in all your web front end servers if you have more than one.
