Duplicate Calendar Entries Automatically Removed?

sbdt8631 asked
Using Exchange 2010  sp1
I recently upgraded from Exchange 2007 to 2010 sp1.  The Exchange organization has one 2010 server.
While changing/upgrading IPhones for my boss something went wrong and his personal, not public,calendar was initialized, nothing left.  I attempted to restore from backup but there was data corruption and only a partial restore was performed.
Working with Symantec on Friday I performed multiple restores to test mailboxes that resulted in many duplicate entries but also restored some entries that previously did not.
I opened the test mailboxes in OWA this morning to try to decide how to proceed and most of the duplicate entries were no longer there.  There are a few duplicates but not many.  I tried doing a Google search to find out if this is a feature in Exchange that I am not aware of, but all I could find are tools to automatically remove duplicate entries or procedures to do it manually.
Is this a feature built into Exchange 2010?  If I restore duplicate calendar entries to my bosses calendar, will Exchange 2010 sp1 remove them?
