I would like to clean TM of the entries that have the same source, target and context. I failed to find any reliable methods, but it may be that I have missed something.

Once again, I want to *preserve* duplicates where source, target or context are different, and to *preserve* the context (as far as I understand, the context gets lost when MemoQ TM is exported to TMX), but would like to *delete* those extra entries, where source, target and context are 97-100% similar.

Version: MemoQ 2013 R2

I use Heartsome and it does a wonderful job (Olifant is another option though but its support has been discontinued, I think).
I am not aware of the duplicates being deleted when exported to TMX. Did you read that in Memoq website/base knowledge?
