Hello!
I am using Mac OS X 10.12

1.
For the default exclude item, I think apart from */._.*
Freefilesync might consider adding */._* by coming with the installation to GlobalSettings.xml.

2.
When sync file, there is a copy to somewhere feature, I think it is good to also have a move to somewhere feature.
Because in some cases that I have met, when I find those files duplicated(in terms of name but different size)
I would rather move it to somewhere first in order and confirm later.

Just a suggestion.
Many thanks for such convenient tools.

Latter is already the default, isn't it?
