    Hi. I have used the "Find Duplicates" successfully in earlier versions of Parallels Toolbox (especially to find duplicate photos).
    I upgraded to Parallels Desktop 15 on the day it came out.
    Today, I went to use the Find Duplicates. I dragged a folder with about 3,000 files into it, started the scan -- and it "scans" for about 1/4th a second before flashing up "No duplicates found".
    I ran disk utility to check for errors, and none were found.
    Any thoughts?

    first of all, please generate Technical Data report and post its ID here (

    Also you can check that "Find Duplicates" works correctly:
    1) Take any file from your 3000 files and create it's copy ( Cmd+C in Finder, then Cmd+V)
    2) Drag and drop both files to "Find Duplicates" and start searching for duplicates. Does "Find Duplicates" find these dups?
