    Why has EVERY photo been duplicated and original renamed "original.[name]"?


      Lightroom 6.0

      Windows 8.1


      New to LIghtroom.

      All my photos have suddenly been duplicated and the original renamed "original.[filename]".  I now have 180,885 photos at 336 GB.


      I can go through and delete every photo called original.xxx, having faith that a twin exists but,

           1- I'm concerned about loosing creation date etc, and,

           2 - how do I stop it doing this?  I truly do not need twice as many photos!


      This phenomena is not just a library/catalog thing - the files exist on my hard drive.


      Thanks for all suggestions.
