Since I upgraded to lightroom classic from lightroom 5.7.1, imports are now importing duplicate images, even though I have checked don't import suspected duplicates. It happens on both my nikon and canon camera images.
Updates for Adobe Photography products began rolling out Tuesday night, August 16th, The updates contain a fix for this issue. If you do not see the update in your Creative Cloud Application, you can refresh it by hitting [Ctrl/Cmd]+[Alt/Opt]+[ R ]. Note: It may take up to 24 hours for your update to be available in your Creative Cloud app.
Thank you for your patience.
We have a fix for this in a future update - unfortunately, it was too late to make it into this week's release. Note: this is not specific to Fuji. I can reproduce with Canon as well.
Opened new bug for investigation. Issue is still not reproducible save very sporadically. In months of attempting to reproduce, it has only happened to me once and was not repeatable. Previous bug was only partially related to this failure.
Updates for the Adobe Photography Products were released on 10.20.2020 that include fixes for these issues. Please install the most recent update and confirm that your issue is now fixed. Please let us know if you encounter any issues.
Thank you for your patience.
I'm still having this issue. I have the most-recent version of lightroom classic installed.
Me too, it's driving me crazy, is there any way to quickly identify and delete the duplicates while we wait for a fix?
I have the same problem . Importing file after update is creating 2 files for the same picture . It’s making a duplicate!!!! What the heck!!! Imagine when you import 3000 pictures
Same problem for me after updating last version!!!
Not to pile on, but I'm also having the same issue as decribed here. It started with the version that introduced the Hue slider to the local adjustments (9.3?) at the time I checked with support and their solution was for me to downgrade and wait for an update to resolve the issue. Now I'm on ver. 10 of Classic (and Creative Cloud says I'm up to date) and I'm still having the same issue. On import, LRC displays both the RAW and sidecar jpeg files and imports both. I have the setting to NOT treat the jpegs as separate files. Following the advice of Support the last time, I uninstalled and reinstalled. Fixed the problem for only one import. Then back to the same problem. What's going on? HOW to fix? Permanently. This is annoying now.
Does anyone know if there is a fix yet
4 months since you posted this surely you have a fix by now
This was fixed in October with the release of 10.0Are you using this release?
@Rikk , I have used the Rename file function for years, to avoid duplicate file names. Many cameras start file naming over for every 10000 images (_DSC1234 og DSC_1234). Lightroom Classic and predecessors have always treated duplicates reliably for me. I appreciate this function so much.
I have experienced significant problems with duplicate file names when helping people locate missing/offline photographs in catalog. I am running a Norwegian user support group with 7000 members.
This has not been fixed. I'm using the 10.0 version and this has happened to me twice this week. Just moments ago, in fact.
Did you see Rikk's comment regarding whether the drive was formatted as "case sensitive"? Only applies to MacOS or running a virtual instance of Windows under Linux.
