    App Q&A testing by request.
    i'm looking for a Duplicate Finder program which can designate a "master" folder that other folders are compared to.

    The Master Folder is left alone, and only duplicates in the others are removed.

    Does such a thing exist.

    Did you find such programs that do NOT have this feature? Good idea to share that so someone doesn't recommend the one(s) you've already checked out and found lacking.

    I know one application that meets your request, and its names is just Duplicate Finder lol
    First of all it can scan duplicate files. And for your request, open "preferences" of the app, you will see the following picture

    You just need to add the folder which has lower priority for deletion, then next time when the app helps you remove duplicates, files in this folder will be left alone.
    Here is the App Store link:
    Hope this can help you ;)
