Duplicate file references consequences ?

Hi,

 

I've noticed that my solution is littered by duplicate file references : I mean that in the Manage External Data Sources, there's several entries that points to the same files.

 

For instance :

 

Name Details

 

Vendors Filepath:vendors

Vendors 2 Filepath:vendors

Vendors 3 Filepath:vendors

 

Those duplicate File references are used in script steps, relationships, fields etc.

 

I'm wondering if there's any bad consequences, besides code readability, to those duplicated file ref : Speed loss, memory footprint, more network utilisation ?

 

Thanks
