Duplicate files/photos ( duplicates )
Like other suggestions I would like a way to not have duplicate files/photos, to save space.
Can we have some specific way to:
1) run a "duplicate" search that can automatically delete files/photos based on a name, size and date
2) search for duplicates and then list them all in name order, showing name, size and date to then give option to review then delete
3) a file compare search for similar looking files, then the option to delete one(s)
Great suggestion and something we’re looking into. Thank you!
Find and remove duplicate files and folders on your drives and cloud storages fast and safely.
Have File Resource monitor report like feature.
Could be per user or for the whole admin.
then you could find dupicates not only for one user but for the whole Company AND also find maybe BIG files or "not allowed" files lurking at your Companys file-storage (although it does not take any storage at your own servers you ar still liable for its content).
that will be useful
I just turned off the sync setting and auto upload for Onedrive. I save to the cloud manually which is not that big a deal since I don't take pictures often. Everything with Windows for me, is a pain **********. Never should have purchased a Windows phone. Sorry, didn't mean to rant...lol

make sure their is a select file to keep and that it can be run manually . also incorporate a duplicate photo finder and it would also be nice if there was a way that eliminated duplicates from being backed up

Just two cents... This is not a problem on Windows Phone. My wife has over 50,000 photos and has never had a problem. As for other apps duplicating photos, that is the problem of the app saving a copy of he image, not OneDrive's fault.

It's a great idea, but I suggest a "bit level comparison" (example: file hash comparison); in this way even if you have different photo name, different creation/modification date but equal photos, they could be discovered and marked as duplicated.

Don't send duplicates and triplicates and quadricaplites and fivedriplicates and son on and so forth.
I use to remove duplicate Orderprog Duplicate File Finder http://orderprog.com/remove-duplicates-all.php
Would be great for iCloud to recognize duplicate photos and not download duplicate photos.
Thnx for writing all that out for me
2.000.000 Votes for that! I hate this sh**. Phone Pictures are synced and whatsapp snyced to onedrive. If i take a photo on my phone, it gets uploaded. Great! After that i send that pic with whatsapp. Whatsapp upload that pic again to onedrive -.-
Or: You want to hard reset your phone. First you take a whatsapp backup. After the reset you say whatsapp "yes please use that backup". And all photos from the backup, witch are already on onedrive, will be downloaded to my phone. After that the phone start du upload that pics to onedrive, and whatsapp will start to upload that pics to onedrive -.-. So i have now 3-4 versions from the same pics >.>.
Oh and one shi* more: Every time the same pic get a new timestamp. so its ultra hardcore to filter and/or delete that duplicated pictures...
I could a solution for that too
I use multiple devices and have the auto upload function switched on. It would be great if the system could remove duplicate picture.
I could really use this
Can OneDrive detect duplicate files/pictures/videos and suggest to be deleted.
Saves Time delving through thousand of Photos to delete duplicated photos
