    Hi,

    You can't avoid it, here is the differences for better understanding between them -

    Import Wizard:

    • For simple imports of up to 50000 records.
    • It supports all custom objects and only few standard objects like Account, Contact, Leads, Solution.
    • It supports schedule export.
    • Delete operation is not available.
    • It doesn’t require installation.
      While importing, duplicates can be ignored.

    Data Loader:

    • For complex imports of any size more than 50000 records.
    • It supports all standard and custom objects.
    • It doesn’t support schedule export.
    • Delete operation is available.
    • It requires installation.
    • While importing, duplicates cannot be ignored.

    Hope this helps.

    No you cannot avoid it, because data loader having this feature while importing, duplicates cannot be ignored.
