Is there an option to do a overwrite for the tool? :D

No, files are never overwritten

What if I want to overwrite the files? Cos i just uploaded a bunch of files, and I would like to overwrite them with newer versions on my end.

You can delete the items in the document library. 

Overwrite functionality was not implemented as it was not required at the time of development, but it should be fairly easy to implement.

I got it to overwrite by changing the following-

In SharePointRepository.cs

Change to 'true' instead of 'shouldOverwrite'.
File.SaveBinaryDirect(context, serverRelativeFileUrl, stream, true);

In DefaultSharePointDestination.cs

Change the ImportFile method to-
public void ImportFile(ImportFile importFile)
            Log.Info("START Processing " + importFile.OriginalFullName);
            var result = DocumentLibraryRepository.CreateFile(importFile);
            ExistingFilenames.Add(new NameSourcePair { Name = importFile.Name, Source = importFile.OriginalFullName });
            if (result.Succeeded)
                RaiseItemProcessed(importFile, result.Location);
