    "Don't import suspected duplicates" doesn't appear to work for large catalogs

    photo jon

      I have around 150,000 images in my Lightroom catalog.  Since hard drives continue to increase in capacity, I would like to import images that I have archived onto CD's and DVD.  I know many of the images on this media  are already in my catalog however when I insert a CD/DVD and go through the export process choosing my catalog "root" as the destination and "don't import suspected duplicates" LR doesn't appear to find any duplicates.  I have confirmed duplicates indeed exist as I'm able to search the catalog for file name and the identical image shows up in that search.

       

      Thanks in advance for the help.
