Cannot find duplicate files


I have a ton of stuff in my database now (1.7G, 52 million words). Among that jumble is a PDF file which claims it has one duplicate. However, I cannot for the life of me find this duplicate. Searching does not show it to me, and if I visit the “Files” directory myself and examine what’s there, I only see one file with the same size as my PDF.

How are duplicates determined? Is it unique words, total words, or a byte-for-byte comparison?

A useful tool would be to “show duplicates/replicants” in a separate window, so I could see where all these copies are and delete all but the one I want.



you should be able to detect the other duplicates by opening/displaying the PDF and using “See Also” then. This should display all duplicates at the top of the list.
