Dupes to Replicants – What Will Happen?


I’ve created a smart group. This smart group contains all duplicate files within a group. These duplicate files reside in various locations on my hard disk and are indexed in DTPO.

What would happen with the original files an my hard disk when I run the script Dupes to Replicants on these files?

Kind regards, Friedrich

Well, the script will do what the script says it will do.

But, of course you just test it on your own data in a small test database or group and see what happens :slight_smile:

It’s never a good idea to listen to anyone’s advice here without first trying it out for yourself.

Nothing happens to them, but the duplicate will be reimported when you interact with the groups in DEVONthink
(This is easily tested to see what I mean).
