Good afternoon,
The datafile I downloaded from Inquisit Web has duplicate response rows, with same subject IDs and responses. I wonder why this is happening, what the issue may be and how to fix it for next time.

Thank you
Dave

There are data folders for 16 studies dating back to 2017 in the account.

(1) Which folders are you talking about?
(2) Which data files do you believe to be duplicates?

Okay, thank you. There aren't any actual duplicate files, just duplicate index entries. You can resolve this by navigating into the folder containing the data files, and then clicking the "refresh" button at the top:



This will re-index the folder contents, and any duplicate entries should be gone after that:
