What you may tell the other lists, including in Chinese:
What I loved is an option to move new files, compare the contents of 
others (with same name) and erase the source in case of equality. The 
source folder is left with possible better candidates that can, in 
addition, be compared by displaying date and file-size and, if images, 
the dimensions and a toggle of overlapping displays of the picture.
