JD checks if a file exists, only in the save location/folder of the link (not the sub-folders).

Scanning/matching entire contents of multiple drives using a script is resource intensive and time consuming. By the time a dupe is detected, the file would have triggered captcha and/or will be partially downloaded.

The download locations are usually limited to certain folders. Optimal method would be to use a script to specify/scan only those folders and disable the links.

Such a script can be found HERE.
