Hello guys,

I have a memory stick with the following structure:

DCIM
100D7000 100 or so files

I had these open in Pathfinder 6 window (with the subfolder expanded). I did a select all and copy to another p6 pane displaying another folder.

Contents were 2.2 GB or so.

P6 tried to copy it with size of 6.6 GB !! And look at the structure it got. It copied the files three times.

Also, it got an error on a file (this one was not reproducible)

Mac explorer had no issues here.

Not good for a paid upgrade, folks.

    Please look at your third screenshot. You're selecting DCIM (and all its contents), 100D7000 (and all its contents) and the actual files. No wonder you're getting duplicates.

    Just select DCIM and copy it. It will copy DCIM and everything inside 1 time.
