Question: Photos App Trying to Import Ghost Files
I've had import issues before where the Photos app fails to import because it can't read the picture/video file for whatever reason. I finally figured out how to find and delete those files so I'd quit getting the errors. But after a recent upgrade (current version High Sierra 10.13.4) Photos stopped opening automatically when I would plug in my iphone. So today, I opened Photos and imported all the pictures I've taken over the last month. But for some reason, it's showing about 20 instances of 3 photos. I scrolled through the thousands of photos on my phone, and deleted all that I found of those photos, yet the Photos import screen still shows 10-15 instances (each) of those photos, as well as single instances of several other photos that don't actually exist - at least not anywhere that I can find them.
I downloaded the iexplore app, and checked in all the media/DCIM folders, and I can't find any of the file names that failed to import. There's 60 items total, and NONE of them exist on the iphone.
Does anybody have any idea on how I can find these files and delete them for good?
