When I import files from my camera in Elements duplicate files are created. In searching for the files on my camera using Windows explorer I can see that there are 90 photos. But Elements downloader finds twice as many photos 180. Before I start downloading I can see the duplicate files in elements downloader next to each other - exactly the same file name date and time - no extension. See the screen shot in the attached file. When the files are imported a duplicate file is created with a -1 after the file number. Why is this happening?
I too have observed this problem with EO 2021. As I have still EO2020 installed I downloaded via USB cable also the same images and videos from my iPhone7+ (iOS 13.7) using EO2020 on a Windows 10 64bit, version 1909. No duplicates were downloaded!!
