What is the Duplicate Filename Report?

The Duplicate Filename Report displays all files with the same filename. That is, if two or more files exist in the project and they have the same filename, they will be displayed in this report.

PLEASE NOTE: This does not mean that the two (or more) file that exist in the project with the same file name are actually the same files. The content of these similarly named files could be different. The Duplicate Filename Report also shows the hash codes of the files in question. If these hash codes are the same, then the files' content is the same.
