The option for " Import suspected duplicates" has been removed from the latest version of Lightroom CC 2015.2.1.
However in order to reimport the images in Lightroom , you need to rename the images out of Lightroom and then import them.
thank you for the answer. But I can not rename thousends of pictures. I have copies of the same picture in diffrent folders and I want that they have the same name. Why adobe removed this functionallity "Import suspected duplicates"? So I need a complete new workfow. I hope adobe will fix this soon anb bring the "Import suspected duplicates" back.

The option was available in Lightroom 6.1.1, so if you want as of now you may Roll back the Lightroom Version to Lightroom 6.1.1
- Uninstall Lightroom. On Windows, you can do this from the Add/Remove Programs screen. On Mac, navigate to Applications > Adobe Lightroom > Uninstall Adobe Lightroom.
- Download and install the 2015.0 / 6.0 release from Download Photoshop Lightroom
- Download and install the 2015.1.1 / 6.1.1 release from: http://blogs.adobe.com/richardcurtis/2015/07/31/lightroom-cc-2015-1-1lightroom-6-1-1-updat e/
thank you for the answer. This would mean I could never make new Lighrtomm update if adobe would not bring backt the "Import suspected duplicates". This makes no sense. I would use allt the new functionality of the new version. But I do not undestrand why in an updated version with more functionality thinks has been removed. I am shore that a lot of people have duplicates of pictures somewhere on there hard drive. But now they can not see them any more in the folder where they are because lightromme does not import them in the case that this picture is already in the catalog but in an nother folder. This makes no sense for me. If I synchronize a folder I want to see all pictures which are in this folder and not only some. I hope adobe birngs back the possibility to import duplicates of pictures which are located in different folders.
Hundreds of people are very unhappy that Adobe removed features from the new Import. Please add your vote and description of how you used those features to this topic in the official Adobe feedback forum: Recently active topics in Photoshop Family about Photoshop Lightroom. Adobe has apologized for the way in which they handled the CC 2015.2 / 6.2 release, though they haven't promised they'd bring back the features: http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2015/10/lightroom-6-2-release-update-and-apology.h tml. So the more people who vote on that topic, the more likely Adobe may reconsider.
