Duplicate files: Duplicates, Copies (binary identical)
« on: January 24, 2021, 02:40:03 PM »
I understand that when searching database for "duplicate" files that
 Search -> Duplicates is less rigorous than Search -> Copies (binary identical)

I have a file where a duplicate is NOT found when I use "Duplicates", but if I search same file using "copies (binary identical)" then a match is found.  :-\

Strange?

Aubrey.

Force a rescan of both files. If the problem persists, send me the files.

Force rescan solved it.
Why didn't I think of doing that?  :-[

Thanks.
