The one feature I really need and have never found in gazillion of dupe hunters is this:  It's worthless displaying just the dupes without the contents and location of their container folders.  A duplicate file is typically part of a package consisting of multiple files in parent and child folders which need to be included in the action.  This is especially problematic when dupes are hunted based on a filter.  Yes, you can sometimes open the containing folder in Explorer, but it's annoying to keep switching back and forth between windows.

I'd like to see everything in one window - a single pane showing groupings of dupe files, and off to the right, separate panes that display the containing directory folder(s) in tree structure.  Since comparison is the goal, there should be separate panes for each selected dupe within a group.  Tabs could be created displaying the folder tree for the selected dupe, with the ability to undock the tabs and arrange or tile the panes.  An entire folder family can be wiped out or dragged to a special holding container to await their fate -- hold 'em or fold 'em.  Layouts can be saved.

Oh, I would give up chocolate for Lent if someone made this!  Otherwise, I'll be forced to.  Hmmmmm.....
