PyCharm duplicating all files in directory

Answered

PyCharm is duplicating all files in my folder every time I start. I have tried nuking .idea, whole folder (and re-cloning from GitHub) but it keeps happening

 

PyCharm 2019.2.3

 

here is a demo of how this ends up

Does it happen to all files, or only to files in some specific folder?

Does it happen in any project?

IDE should not be doing this, maybe there are some third-party plugins or file-watchers doing this,

This is now happening for me in CLion 2019.2.5 too... no idea how to start to debug this?

The only way I have been getting around it is to nuke the folder and re-clone
