An ongoing problem with windows 10 photo app and "Pictures" files: duplicate photos I have not asked for.
For example, I just imported photos from my iPhone and I have SEVEN (7) copies of each photo. The duplicates are in the pictures file, and in the photos app.
1) Why does this happen
2) How do I make it stop happening
3) Can I search for duplicate photos and tell the program to delete duplicates? (the program adds a number after the duplicate like this: original is IMG_6644.JPG the copy is IMG_6644 (1).JPG. The second copy is IMG_6644 (2).JPG , etc )
4) Does the program screen for duplicates so it will not import the same photo again? If not, this would be a good feature to add.
Please note that I did not request a duplicate; I did not try to move or do anything to the photos that would have caused this.
Thought: if an import fails, does it cause duplicates?
This is really annoying and keeps happening. I suspect there is a setting or software glitch somewhere that results in photos/pictures making unrequested copies.
