Duplicate results

Post by deguza » Fri May 29, 2020 8:43 pm

Hello all,

Why do I see the search results come up with duplicate lines?

I force re-built but duplicates are still there.

Thanks,

Deguza

I guess you have enabled Folder indexing for an NTFS volume.
This gives of course duplicate results.

Thanks for your reply.

I took drives C and D from Indexes > Folders, and that solved the problem.

However, for my mounted X, Y, and Z drives on my NAS, I discovered that I cannot do the same. If I take them out of Indexes > Folders, they completely disappear from the search results.

How do I deal with the mounted drives?

Thanks!

For the mounted NAS drives you have to configure Folder indexing.

Thank you again.

Upon inspection, I discovered that there are actually duplicates in the same folder! Same name, same everything except the tags are a bit different. So the operating system on the NAS is able to consider them to be different files by looking at the tags, I suppose.
