    Default Files present in multiple locations

    Every time I do a rebuild database I get a lot of "Files present in multiple locations". How do I get rid of them? They are dead weight.

    There are two causes of this.

    1) Check your edit folder and ensure nothing is in there open for edit.

    If you recently had a crash and chose use anyway, you may have bits left over. I've had that message a few times when I ran a database repair after doing that.

    2) There aren't any extra files in there and the database is confused.

    I've had this too and I think this is related to a mix-up in the database. The assets.tdx contains records that reference the content data files. If there are duplicate records, I believe this will create that message. The way to check this is to run an EDR and see if that cleans that up.

    I did the EDR, and prebuild after that and the "Files present in multiple locations" are still there. If I remember correctly a few updates earlier it was deleting them to the back up folder. Yes/no?
