Catalog constantly adding the same paths twice

Postby 3x5 » Fri Jan 27, 2017 2:54 pm

I am in the process of sorting my photos, but repeatedly now, I've gone through a big batch of them, and then I'll see duplicates in my categories. Then I will look in settings/catalog and the directories I've been copying to are listed twice. The number of files and the mb are the same on both lines.

If I delete one, I will lose a bunch of categorization in my filter tree. If I rebuild the catalog from files, they will come back -- but the duplicate lines and duplicate entries will also come back.

It happens for me too. See specs in sig.

A „patch” would be to put an UNIQUE constraint in DB with ON ERROR IGNORE on CategoryID and ImageID (IIRC).
The best would be to find the cause. In my case, usually I use the shortcuts to assign the categories, if this matters.
