    Why does Lightroom import duplicates?  How do I prevent duplicates?  Checking the do not import duplicates does not work in many cases?

      Lightroom keeps importing duplicate photos, even when the option to avoid duplicates is checked?  Why is this so hard for Lightroom to figure out that the image is the same.  Once it is imported, it knows it is duplicated because it puts a -2 on the duplicate.  Really?  If Lightroom knows it is a duplicate, why does it import it a second time?
