Google Drive: duplicates can be discerned soon faster




Who does not know that? It stores multiple files in its Google Drive, this would adjust later and loads it back to the home computer. After processing is stored quickly – of course under the previous name – and the file is moved back to the online store. Tadaaa: produces duplicate. And it’s annoying to find out which for now the current and what is the file the old version. This problem has now assumed to Google and now released an update for the web version of Drive, the duplicates recognizes numbered and marked during the upload.

Once a user uploads a file to an already existing name, the corresponding files are deduplicated, so it remains only the most current version of the file visible and the old versions are on the File History recallable, are not simply deleted.

Keep as a separate file

In addition to folders that have as an existing on Drive, just merged with the existing folder with the same name. If you want to not use the deduplicate the files, so you click “Keep as separate file” and you remain both versions.


The new feature will be distributed starting today, but may have to wait depending on the region even up to two weeks to be.
