Due to Codex HDE limitations, duplicate detection is not available for .arx files.

Codex disks work with dynamic VFS volumes. After the Codex driver has mounted the disk, it takes a while for the file system to be populated. The duration depends on the performance of your computer, and how much content is living on the disk.

When transferring a Codex drive, the Codex integration verifies Codex transfers for completeness, checking Source contents at the beginning and end of each transfer. If inconsistencies are detected, you will be prompted with an Incomplete Codex Disk Detected alert, with an option to fix the issue.
