Glitch with double of files

Post by xmaster » Sat Oct 30, 2021 6:02 pm

Issue: I have a google drive with files streamed to Mac. Also, I have a PC with files mirrored to PC from the same google drive account.
So, obviously, the amount of data on Mac and PC in the same folders should be the same.
But, some folders on Mac have files with the same filenames - double of files. From my 2TB data in the cloud and thousands of files, I have 10ths of doubles in the same folders on Mac if I open folders from NC.
If I open folders from Finder - there are no such problems, doubles are absent or not visible.

I don't know what is the source of the problem (NC or Google Drive), but GD on PC doesn't have doubles as well as GD online too.

For example:
See screenshots attached: 425 files in Finder and 426 files in NC with double of 1 file with exactly the same name (as well as attributes and dates) in the same folder.

That's bizarre...
Could you please provide an output of "ls -alh@" in that folder to check if duplicates are present there?
