According to this help "fixutil describe -?", it should overwrite descriptions

-RemoveGroup Remove group names from descriptions
-NotOverWrite Do not overwrite any existing fileecho descriptions
-EchoList Specified file has fileecho list format as exported
by ASETUP ([fileecho] [description]Wink.

This command imports the file echo descriptions from a standard
FILEBONE.NA file. It will also update the RAID flags for each
fileecho. The format of the FILEBONE.NA file MUST be as follows:

Area [file echo] [sec level] [flags] [description]

Example of FILEBONE.NA file:

Area BACKBONE 0 ! National: Area Lists of FidoNet BackBone
Area SERVICES 0 ! FDN: File Distributuion Networks Joint Newsletter
