Description of the issue

Up until I had a computer crash and had to "recover" all my files I was able to find duplicates, sort and remove them.  Now, my command to find duplicates  (! in the email field)  does not bring up duplicates ... of which there are hundreds.  I know there are hundreds because when I sort by the email field I can visually see the duplicates.  I am combining data from several different FM files to make a master list.  There are fields in some files for only email addresses.  Some files also include fields for first name, last name, address, city, state, zip, etc. 

Could this problem be related to my computer crash and the recovered files?  Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error message appears; my search for duplicates only brings up two records.
