I have an HTC Amaze. I've just imported all my photos from my phone onto my computer and have come across this insanely perplexing problem....
For the majority of all my photos, there are multiples and as many as 5 times of the same photo on my computer.
The photos that I have taken WITH the phone itself are mostly the ones affected but when reviewing them in Windows Live Photo Gallery, I noticed that only 1 shows up, for example as: "IMAG0033 file and the rest that are really tiny are identified like this for ex: "10-44786221-1266319-960 - Windows Live Photo Gallery"...all the same picture.
I know that there is a folder in Gallery (on phone) that shows ALL photos, but then somehow there are other folders, for which I didn't create! I just take the pictures, download some from emails, but I've never created any other folder.
How do I stop the duplication of these photos? When I imported these pictures from my phone, it said there was 1800 and some pictures and its safe to say 60% of them are duplicates or more!
