It sounds like something else is going wrong. The first thought is that the files are marked as read only. calibre actually does a copy followed by a delete, so if the original are read only, it might not be able to delete them.

Another possibility is the file system is damaged somehow and the deletes aren't working. Running a check on the drive would be a good idea.

The only other thing is if this happened with the previous version. The changes for 0.8.67 include a change in how larger books are copied. Are the books bigger than 3MB?
Yes I have books over 3Mb.

I don't know what to do at this stage.

Any suggestions please on the followings?

a) How to get rid off the duplicates?
b) What should i do from now on, so it does not happen again?

kind regards
