I am interested in reloading some files into Splunk however Splunk is (rightfully) ignoring the files as they havee already been loaded. Is there a way to force Splunk to reload these files?
You need to clean the fishbucket (you can find how to do it here at splunk answers) or modify the header of the file, to make splunk think is a new one not indexed yet.

I was able to do this by using the following commands:
splunk clean eventdata _fishbucket -index
splunk clean eventdata -index
Then I restart Splunk and moved the files I wanted to reload into monitored directories.
