Hi,

We are using the Dropbox API to list files /folders (https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder)
I have a find a issue is two files having same ID ..could you please tell us how it is possible? Can any two files have same ID's..
We are listing around 1000 files and in those I found two files have same ID..

Please look into this issue and let us know.

Please see the screen shot attached  with showing the file with same ID

Please note that file IDs are case sensitive, and can vary only be case, so you should always use case-sensitive comparisons.

 

In the sample you shared here, the file IDs are different by case. The second to last characters use different cases.
