See this Artical:

Eliminate duplicate files

If you have lots of duplicate files you may want to use this programme to help delete duplicates:

The files are not duplicates they are the same file (like a ghost file) when one is deleted the other is then not accessible but still shows up in search

Can you take a screen shot and upload it here so I can see an example. I'm just wondering if its a TMP file of the origional. Or some sort of backup.

Strange. I notice this is on your Bond_DO_Server

Do you have the same issue on any other drives?. Or just on the Bond Server
