Not seeing hidden unique rectangle

I used a web site to help solve a square that I was stuck with: 609240007 002076090 173090624 806430079 090000060 000069005 918000746 000687912 267914358 When it got to where I was stuck, it found: HIDDEN UNIQUE RECTANGLE Type 2: removing 5 at E4 because of CE46 and one strong link between C6 and E6...

Check candidates

Occasionally I get stuck. Often I can restart and next time I don't get stuck. That would lead me to suscpect mistakes as my problem. I erased the wrong candidate (fumble fingers). Trouble is, the check button doesn't notice if I erase the correct candidate, and by the time I discover I'm stuck or a...

Difficulty

I've been doing puzzles from the Daily Lite Sudoku lately. Twice, including today, I have failed to solve the Mean level puzzle. But I've always solved the Maniac level puzzle.

How are these levels determined?
