Summary.seqs "File mismatch detected"

Hi there

I keep getting an error and I don’t know how to fix it…

summary.seqs(fasta= stability.trim.contigs.trim.good.unique.align, count= stability.trim.contigs.trim.good.count_table, processors=5)

Using 5 processors.
[ERROR]: Your count file contains 10115971 unique sequences, but your fasta file contains 3460246. File mismatch detected, quitting command.

Cheers!

This usually happens when you get your files out of sync with each other. Can you go back a few steps and try again making sure that you keep your files consistent?
