actually a "complete File Info" Dialogue with all the details is on my "to do list"

Well - that's a big misunderstanding since years - a "Kilo" means always 1000 - it always has been - that we read so often 1024 bytes = 1 kilo byte is simply wrong - honestly - repeating this error again and again over years (like Windows and others does) will not make this correct as some day...

1000 bytes = 1Kilobyte
1024 bytes = 1Kibibyte

and since my app is deviding the filesize by 1024 - KiB is the correct abbreviation -> Kibibyte - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jesus! - deleting files without confirmation from the user? - typically I would call such an program a virus! Honestly - that would be a NO-GO... BBFileScout create Zip-Archives and will not touch the original files.
