When doing M-x recover-this-file, I am presented with list of files
similarly like in Dired listing. If file is 465k and difference small
with files, then I just see 2 files, one being "#file#" and other
"file". That list presented as a choice for decision if to recover the
file or not is not sufficiently informative. It gives me no information
on why should I recover the file.

Something more informative would be if Emacs would tell me which file is
larger.

Even better would be if I could be represented an option to quickly see
the difference between the files.
