Syncing - Duplicates file instead of merging


I have uploaded a file to one drive, and I have shared it by syncing the folder. I've updated the file separately on both machines. However this has now created a a duplicate file? But on both machines it says its synced correctly, why has the file not merged? 

Any solutions? 


Hi Grant,

Could you please confirm which option is selected in OneDrive sync client, Let me choose to merge changes or keep both copies or Always keep both copies (rename the copy on this computer)?

Please make sure you have first option selected i.e. Let me choose to merge changes or keep both copies.
