Moments doubled the storage space, created duplicates

Last week i decided to go all in with Moments and moved the entire contents of Photo shared folder into 'Home>Drive>Moments' i have upwards of 78,000 photos and thousands of videos.

The CPU has sat at 99% usage for 10 days now which is to be expected (although worrying - synology Tech support estimates two weeks to fully index that ammount)

but my big concern is the storage pool.....

The photos folder prior to move, was around 1TB in size (storage pool was sitting around 70% full), Its now up at 91% full and still indexing. I have set up a report in storage analyzer for duplicates, it seems like Moments has created the files in both the 'drive' and 'Photos' locations?

Has anyone else experienced this? If i was to start removing duplicates, which folder do i delete from 'drive' or 'photos'?

  • With Moments 1.2.0 and versions above supporting the Shared Photo Library feature, you can simply enable this feature in Moments to view and index the photos and videos in Photo Station, without needing to move or copy these items from Photo Station to Moments. In addition, you can edit the access permissions to allow other Synology NAS users to access Shared Photo Library. Please refer to the "Enable Shared Photo Library" section in this Help article for more information.

I have the same problem. Is the shared photo library the solution?

Check your Recycle folder within the Drive app. I just transferred 30k photos onto my NAS. Its a long story, but when I pulled them from other computers, I pulled them into my home/user folder first, and then used a photo sorting app to move them to the photos/moments folder. When the app was done, I wouldn't have any photos showing in my home/user folder, but if I went into the Drive app, my Recycle folder would be full of all the photos I moved. I don't know if the photo sorter copied the photos into the photos/moments folder and then deleted them out of my home/user folder, or if Drive somehow assumes that any file that gets removed from one of its folders automatically needs to go into that Recycle folder, but that's where I found my storage getting doubled up at.
