PS Elements Organizer Mystery

I recently did a clean install (reset) of my W10 OS. I then reinstalled all programs and manually moved document files and folders back to my hard drive.

One of the programs was PS Elements 2018. It's important to note that installed PSE before I added photos back onto my hard drive. Before doing so, I shut off everything auto in Organizer, including Watched Folders, auto curate, auto tagging, face recognition. I never put the Organizer catalog backup on my computer; I discarded it.

Next I transferred all my photos from an external hard drive into my Pictures. Then I manually imported the images into PSE Organizer and received this message about skipped files:

Question:

Since PSE was a clean install on a new OS install where all files, programs, etc. had been removed, how could Organizer say that files were already present?! Doesn't make sense.

Any insights would be appreciated.
