Index creates duplicates

Hi All,

I’m having a problem with indexing. The first time I index is fine. I then move the files to groups. Later, when I index to update new files that have been added to the system, DTPro Office adds my original files as duplicates (blue) to the database. How do I only have a file indexed once?


That’s the way indexing is supposed to work. When you Indexed a folder, a group was created in the database that includes the same contents as the Finder folder. Next time you synchronize the group to the folder, it will again hold the same contents as the folder. If in the meantime you moved some of the documents out of the group to other locations, you will end up with duplicates.

Try indexing files rather than folders, if you plan to reorganize their group placement after capturing them to the database.
