Google drive allows users to create (mostly by accident) duplicate folders and files.
Who is the real folder1?
Google is the only platform that allows users to create this sort of mess.
How Movebot deals with duplication
Duplicated data creates two main issues for Migrations.
1. Most destination systems do not allow duplicate files and folders.
2. Tracking changes is impossible with files that are named the same.
To facilitate safe data transfer, Movebot will rename files and folders that have duplicate names.
This deduplication ensures files are not lost and the folder structure is maintained.
Deduplication cannot be disabled
Even though with Google to Google transfers, Google supports duplication, Movebot does not allow this behaviour as it creates risk of data loss.
