Lightroom is allowing duplicates when told not to allow them.

On import (copying from one drive to another) Lightroom is allowing duplicates even when "Don't allow suspected duplicates" is checked. The file name, size,creation date etc. are exactly the same. What I did was import (copy) files from an external drive into Lightroom on my main computer. Then later I wanted to make sure I had imported them all from that drive (I have been traveling a lot and didn't want to lose any images), so I said import (figuring any duplicates would be ignored). It added them all again! I have double checked...the files are identical in every way.

Which version of Lightroom are you using?
What OS version are you using?
How did you verify that the files were identical?
