Removing image from the database (after deleting picture)

A quick check shows that the two thumbnails exist on both albums . . . 
the source and target for a move.  What I discovered was a collision of 
file names as I had foolishly tried to complete a move before applying 
unique file names.  The original images in the target album do not 
appear at all in the digikam thumbnails but when I look at the folder on 
the hard drive the original files are still in the target and the 
transferred files are not.  No warning appeared when I made the move 
using digikam.
