In the File Already Exists dialog box, the dialog box you get when you try to drop a file in a folder that already has a file with that name, it would be nice if you were given the file size and date the file was last edited. You get that for some file types, but for others (such as image files) you don't.

Not to mention, it would be great (also for images) to get a preview: i.e. source image looks like this, destination image looks like that. It provides more of a visual feedback than merely a file-size.

I already posted that idea. See this thread [KIO] Previews for all files in File Already Exists Dialog.
