I keep finding copies of images in my library. I only use one catalogue. The copy images have very long file names - for example E11A5D1D-DA61-4322-8C4E-28D6F259A22C_1_105_c.jpeg. They appear sometimes alternating with the original file and sometimes in blocks following a block of original images. Sometimes they just appear seemingly randomly in the library. I have it organised chronologically, but these things can be WAY out of sequence. I have tried contacting adobe technical dept. They have no idea. Has anyone else had this issue? I am completely stumped. Cannot think of a thing I could have done to make it happen. Camera image storage settings don't seem to make a difference. some images have never even been opened within lightroom and yet I get a copy. I do store my images on an external hard drive, but this was happening before I did that.
Has anyone else had this issue. It is amazingly irritating.
