Error: duplicate-file-name

Error Type

Duplicate File Name error is caused by having 2 files with the same name

During the scan stage of a migration (the first step), Movebot will perform checks to ensure your data will transfer properly. One of these checks is the paths of files - there is a chance some of your files have the same path as another one of your files

Common Root Causes

  • The file has the same path as another file

Quick Fixes

  • Nothing needs to be done to resolve this - we perform de-duplication to ensure that your files do not end up with the same path

  • De-duplication causes the file name to be renamed and prefixed with (Dup 1), (Dup 2), etc

After attempting a fix, rerun failures or run a new delta migration to see if the error is resolved.
