I can't find any information on the prevention of the import of duplicates in Lightroom (Cloud). Plenty of stuff on Classic.
Any guidance would be appreciated. I also use Mobile.
Lr calculates a hash value if the image.
The hash value is used as a logical key, which prevents a duplicate image from being imported regardless of filename.
There are a few ways around this, but this is the general concept.
