duplicate image files in media library

  1. I exported one WP.com blog and imported it into another, newly created one. The move went fine.
    But when I looked in my media library, I noticed that all the image files that existed at the time of the move are now duplicated. New ones, uploaded since the import appear as singletons.
    Am I right in thinking that I can harmlessly delete the duplicates? And is the appearance of the doubles something to do with the move?
    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is stmarysnews.wordpress.com.

  2. forgot to add site URL: http://stmarysnews.wordpress.com/

  3. Did you import your site a while ago? We fixed a problem with duplicated image some time ago, but if you upgraded before then we may need to check your site.

    Could you please contact us from this link?

  4. Thanks for replying - I marked the post 'resolved' because I thought it had failed to attract attention, but it isn't really ...
    Maybe I'm being dumb but I went to the link you suggested and couldn't see any way to contact you from there :(

    Anyway, I did the import about one week ago.

  5. thank you!
