Duplicate apps appear in folders

I have an S9+ and over the last month or so I have noticed that apps in some folders duplicate themselves, they go if I reboot.

you can delete the empty ones manually

Ok, so this is strange - last week I purchased a S20 + and transfered my data using Smart Switch. Everything was working well until this morning when I noticed that the very same folders that duplicated apps on the S9 also had duplicate apps in them on the S20. I manually removed each duplicate app and then cleared the cashe partition, when I rebooted all those apps and the folders they were in had vanished (but not ininstalled). So I had to place them back on the home screen and then create the folders again.

So I've obviously transfered the problem somehow from my old S9.

Yep it seems like that.

Glad you solved.

Oh😅 i understood that you had the problem but you solved it 😅 

Well you can hard reset your phone and manually transfer photos on your pc and use cloud to save app data.

Then you import everything manually. I never use smartswitch when i reset but install and set up everything from stratch
