Description

I understand that this might be a feature rather than a bug, but at least a warning notification should be presented.
Here is a case I've encountered, which made me pull at my hair once I realized what it was about:
I've imported photos from two separate cameras, which due to my import settings have received the same name, namely $(DATE)_$(PhotoEnumOnCamera).
When I processed them later on and tried merging those photos from several film folders into one trip folder, this photo was ignored (since a photo under that name was already present in the destination folder), leaving the photo in the original folder, and without presenting any kind of notification.
It took me a while to realize that a photo with the same name already existed, and this might be the reason.
Otherwise I couldn't tell if there was a problem with DT, the database or something else...
