Hello

How to tell "duplicate checker" that the duplicate the tool detected is not duplicate, but two individuals? Here:




Also, it seem that duplicate checker reacts on ALL media files, all are "duplicates" , which those are not. Why, and how to stop it?

You can't.

It's a fairly simple tool, and just looks for records with the same name.

The problem with making it more sophisticated is that it would need to load the entire tree into memory, and for large trees this would exceed most serfver's memory limits (and probably CPU limits).

So, we just use some simple tests that can be run directly from the database.

Because they all have the same name. (Presambly, they all have *no* name).
If you edit them and give them a unique, descriptive title, they will not appear as duplicates.
