There are 3 phases

Phase 1 - Finding Files and pre-checking
The program is detecting the files in the inputed folder and creating the data to later on parse them After that is complete, it will detect possible duplicated files
= File is not duplicated / empty (White)
Duplicated file found (Red)
Duplicated image file found (Dark red)
Phase 2 - Comparison
The program will now compare the current file with the all the possible duplicates
Compared duplicated files (Purple)
Phase 3 - Cleanup
In this phase, the program will prepare it self to generate the excel / text output
File ready for output (Green)
