As I had initially reported here in March 2017, DTTG has had a tendency to report files as duplicates even when they are not.
This continues to be an issue in 2.6.2. All of what was covered in that March 2017 thread continues to be relevant, including attempting all fo the troubleshooting described there. In the year since that post I’ve done plenty of database verification, I’ve re-established sync, including moving from Dropbox to iCloud, I’ve completely remade databases (e.g., starting a database from scratch), and yet I still get false duplicates. This affects both of the databases I have in DTTG.
Currently there are 22 duplicates reported, all of which are not actually duplicates (and yes, I’ve checked every single one of these, and no, they aren’t duplicates of trash items).
Across two databases I have 1968 items, the vast majority of which are PDF and Markdown files.
Do any fellow users have suggestions? Any more insights from the DEVONtech folk into why this might continue to be happening, even with brand new databases in brand new sync stores?
The original support ticket was #179523 which may have more details for the DT Folk.
