Hi all,

 

I'm getting sporatic, automatic duplicates when I import. It's a new thing, only happening recently. No settings changed, just updates installed.

 

Description:

  • 3,988 photos on card, no duplicates here.
  • LrC import screen: Shows 3,988 photos. Source is the card, "Copy" is selected, File Handling only has "Into Subfolder" selected.
  • Click "Import"
  • Wait for a loooooooooong time
  • Go to LrC-created folder on hard drive AND in LrC... shows 5,140 photos????

 

Looking closer, it clearly isn't duplicating every file.

Anybody have any insights here? Thanks.

Have you inspected in camera for those file names? Are you sure LrC is doing this, and not the camera?

Can confirm the card has no duplicate files. The random duplicates only appear after imported into LrC.

How are you getting the image files off the camera?

Are you connecting the camera directly to the computer with a cable?

Are you using a Card Reader and cable?

Are you using a memory card slot built into the computer?

The images are on an SD card that has been inserted into the reader in a wired Caldigit dock.

Do a TEST import and Copy the files off the memory card to a folder on your computer but not the final folder you would of used if importing directly from the memory card. Then in the import dialog select Move, or copy, and point Lr to move or copy, those images to the final destination folder.

 

What happens? Are some images duplicated?

 

I suspect LrC and your OS is losing the connection to the memory card in that Dock you are using.
