"Fix" duplicate issue?

Recommended Posts

Due to my own stupidity (not DriveBender's!) I have made a bit of a mess with my DB pool :(


Running the search tools in Duplication, I find that I have duplicate files that have missing primary files as well as primary files that have missing duplicates. Fun eh?


Although the reports in DB shows the files affected, I can't spot any way of automatically fixing the problem (I.E. creating the relevant primary and duplicate files). Have I missed something in the GUI or is there currently no way to do this?

I guess I have the same problem and found this in the manual:


- Search for duplicate files that have missing primary files: This will search for all duplicate files that do not have a matching primary file (only under folders marked for duplication). Files in this state (orphaned duplicates) are not visible via the pool, and can only be found using this method. To recover files in this start, use the pool "Repair" option.


Funny thing is, it did not help with my orphaned files *shrug*


Maybe someone has another idea?
