This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic: Before after comparison of metadata conflicts

Whenever Lightroom detects any kind of conflict between it's catalogue and a XMP sidecar file, it asks me how to handle that conflict. Problem is, I don't get any detailed information on the conflict like editing timestamps or actual differences in settings.

We do need 
  1. much better conflict detection (often times LR detects conflicts that don't exist)
  2. overview on changes between the two versions
  3. preview of image rendered with the different settings

This has been discussed for years now:
Lightroom: Before after comparison of metadata conflicts

Please fix this!
