How to delete duplicate Files?

Mar 25, 2011 5:26 AM

Hey there,

 

I see I have some Files with a little notice on top saying 1of2. Now when I click the delete option, it only offer the usual way to delete from catalog or move from disk, but where do I choose to just delete one of the duplicates?

    '1 of 2' usually refers to virtual copies rather than actual copies. If you try and delete '2 of 2' you should get a screen asking 'Remove the selected virtual copy ?'

     

    If you delete '1 of 2' you will get the normal delete message and you will loose both copies, as the virtual copy can't exists without it's parent.

    Before you start deleting, you should know that those numbers on top of the image denote a stack of images of different type. They can include stacks of any images you put there besides virtuals, including multiple images you worked on in Photoshop or just a set you wanted to combine to clean up your view of multiple images. Unstack them first (right click>Stacking>Unstack) and then delete what you don't want.

    I used DuplicateFilesDeleter and I was extremely pleased with the result.
