I have seen a few posts on this but have not found an answer.


I have been using LR 6 for a long time. About a week ago I subscribed to Lightroom CC 4.1. 


I migrated 12k images from my iMac and also downloaded the cient on my Macbook and iPhone. Everything was fine but now every image 2019 and below is showing as duplicated. When I look at the info, it shows one as the file and the other as a smart preview. 


The number of images is still 12k and I am still using the same amount of storage so the files cannot have been duplicated actually; just how they are presented. I don't want to delete anything as it may remove the main file. I unistalled LR 4.1 and reinstalled and the problem is still the same.


This isn't happening on new photos. 


I have attached a screengrab.


Any help would be appreciated.
