OS X :: Applications Folder Crashes Finder For One User?

Feb 11, 2008

My main user account went haywire at the weekend - dock disappearing and Finder cycling and rebooting every few seconds. I fixed those issues by trashing the dock and finder .plist files, and all appears to be well except...I cannot access the Applications folder without the Finder crashing. All other folders appear fine.- I can access the Applications folder using another user- I can access the apps themselves from spotlight- I tried trashing .DS_Store - no difference.

Intel Mac :: Whenever Try To Access Downloads Folder, Finder Crashes And Restarts Itself

Jun 17, 2012

whenever I even go near the Downloads folder, Finder crashes. This happens whether I try to access it from Users -> (username) or if I am trying to attach something to an email, in list view. It is really irritating me, because I put most of my stuff into this folder, and cannot access it!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Name Of User In Shared Folder @ Finder?

Apr 14, 2012

I try to buy music in iTunes. I learned that I have not set correctly the rights on the shared folder in the Finder. I tried to correct the rights to read and write for all three user groups, it´s still not working.I figured that one of the three users is not correct:

1. system (me)

2. wheel

3. everyone 

In my case, it´s not showing system, but it´s stating "loading" with a ?.I think I can´t buy music cause of the missing name in the shared folder, right?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder Not Showing User Library Folder

Mar 25, 2012

When I open Finder on my iMac, then click on my user name in the sidebar, I am not seeing the Library folder for my user name. I need to modify some of the application support folders for specific applications, but I cannot find them using Finder. These folders are specific to my user name and are not located within the Macintosh HD/Library folder for the entire computer.

They should be in the path Macintosh HD/Users/[my username]/Library/Application Support/[application name].

But for some reason, the "Library" folder doesn't even show up in Finder when I click on Macintosh HD/Users/[my username]. It's visible when I open one of the applications and use preferences to access folders in the application support folder for that application, but not when trying to get to the same location using Finder -- which I need to do in order to copy and paste some of the files.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder App Has Somehow Moved Out Of Applications Folder?

Mar 26, 2012

My Finder is now in my Pictures folder and won't run at all. All I can see is the finder menubar, but it's not active.  I've tried using Quicksilver to move it back into the Applications folder, but it gives me an error each time. I've also tried opening the Pictures folder in terminal like this:  open ~/Pictures/  but it obviously can't open until I move the Finder app.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Applications Folder In Finder Empty?

May 9, 2012

My application folder appears to have "split" from the applications shortcut in the Finder window. The shortcut under Favorites contains all my applications, while the folder itself contains none...When I get info on both of them, I see the following:

App Shortcut: "Where: /"

App Folder: "Where: /Users/SarahSteeds" 

Also, I've only had one new software download that saved itself to the Applications folder (at location "/Users/SarahSteeds"). All others have been directed to the shortcut (at location "/")

Applications :: Changing Office 2004 Microsoft User Data Folder Location?

Sep 19, 2006

It really ***** me that Office 2004 places the Microsoft User Data folder in your Users/Accountname/Documents folder, and if you move it it just makes a new one Is there any reliable way to move the location to somewhere else and keep it that way? The Documents folder should be the realm of the user and the user alone, damn applications should keep their noses out!

OS X :: Finder Is Restarted Completely Forgets The Settings For The Applications Folder

Apr 5, 2009

Attached you'll see two images. The first, 'Applications Folder', is how I want my Applications Folder to look whenever I access it directly (i.e. from the Go menu in the Finder Menu Bar, or from an alias or from the Dock by right-clicking, Open "Applications").

Finder used to remember this appearance perfectly. I can't remember exactly when this started, but now whenever Finder is restarted (killall Finder or a reboot) it completely forgets the settings for the Applications folder and opens it as shown in the second image, 'Finder Bug'. That's the far right of the screen, by the way. Not only does it forget the size and position of the folder's window, it also resets the grid spacing to the default value.

It only does it for this folder...I've already tried removing the .DS_Store file many times, so it's not an issue with that file. I've also run clean-up scripts and repaired permissions. It's bugs like this that still make me long for Tiger.

Software :: Finder Crashes When I Run PS CS4 / Fix It?

Jan 29, 2010

When I run Photoshop CS4, Finder crashes. Then it offers nothing but the spinning color wheel, and my only option is to manually turn off my computer (which seems bad for my hard drive.)

I've made no major changes to my system lately, nor have I downloaded/installed anything recently.

What is the issue? Finder? CS4? Tiger?

I need to fix this immediately.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder Crashes After Loading NAS?

Feb 21, 2012

I've tried to copy something from my NAS to the Mac and had to quit in the middle of the process.

Now, when the Finder connects to the NAS it crashes (icons disappear from the desktop, same do finder windows and bar). Tried Relaunch, nothing happens.

Tried Reboot, at first everything is ok, then (couple of minutes later) I get the message that the connection to the NAS was interrupted and then nothing works anymore.

System is updated, caches are cleared, all periodic scripts have been run...

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Finder Crashes When Trying To Search

Apr 2, 2012

The original problem was whenever I opened a new Finder window and began to type in the search bar, as soon as I got three letters in, the whole thing would crash on me. After some unsuccessful fix attempts, now Finder no longer opens from the dock icon its supposed to. When I click on the icon, a new one with the default App icon opens at the end of the dock, and it works from there. The search problem also only appears when opening a finder window directly from the dock. If Finder opens to, say, allow me to choose a file to upload to a website, search doesn't crash on me. Spotlight still works correctly.

I tried to delete/reset the prefrences, but when I go to the folder, the preference list for Finder isn't there. I tried removing all the preferences and restartting just in hopes it would help, but it didn't solve anything. I've also repaired disk permissions using the disk utility, but that seems to have created the new problem.

MacBook Pro :: Finder Crashes Continuously (OS X Lion 10.7.3)

Apr 14, 2012

When running a lot of different applications (OpenOffice, R64, Microsoft Office, iTunes, etc.) on my MacBook Pro (2.2 GHz Core i7, 8 GB RAM), Finder freezes continuously. Most of the time it'll restart quickly, or in the best cases, it will eventually start working again after a few minutes. This is extremely annoying as I use my computer for work and constantly have to wait in order to access files. I've tried deleting hidden files in directories among other things, but nothing seems to do wonder.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Crashes While Naming Files

Jun 23, 2014

For the past several months (and only since downloading Mavericks) Finder crashes about 50% of the time I try to name a file on the Desktop. I click the file, hit 'enter', and either right away or while trying to type the first letter, the rainbow spinning wheel comes up and I have to Relaunch Finder.

My computer specifications:MacBook Pro, 13-inch, Late 2011Processor: 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MBSoftware: OS X 10.9.3 (13D65)Memory: 4 GBStorage: 415.18 GB free out of 499.25 GB; 500 GB SATA Disk 

Relaunching Finder will usually cancel any changes made to the document name before it crashed, and will allow me to then name the file, but usually the next file I try to rename crashes and the process repeats.

OS X :: Plugging In External Hard Drive Crashes Finder?

wouldn't even load. It would just show the little blue "light" flashing on and off, as if Finder were launching, crashing, launching, crashing.After some deduction, I found the problem to be my USB WD hard drive. It used to previously work fine. It has only one partition on it, which is HFS+ formatted. Disk utility verify/repair reports that the drive is fine.

MacBook Pro :: Finder Crashes When TimeMachine Starts Backup

May 27, 2012

My finder/computer crashes at least once or twice a day when the Time Machine backups start (there are other times where the backup will go fine).  I am using a MacBook Pro, 2011 2.2 GHz i7 with 8GB of Ram.  I have a 64 GB Samsung SSD drive I use for startup and applications, and a 700 GB SSD/7500 hybrid drive mounted in the Superdrive bay for docs/music/etc.  

I have a 1TB WD HDD connected via USB I use for Time Machine. Looks like there might be something amis when I am using Chrome and Time Machine in the superdrive bay SSD/HDD setup?  Also some software update errors were being thrown just before the crash too. 

Here is the console Log just before the crash through the reboot: 

5/27/12 12:45:10.207 PM com.apple.SecurityServer: Failed to authorize right 'system.install.app-store-software' by client '/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/PackageKit.framework/Versions/A/Resources/in stalld' [8335] for authorization created by '/usr/sbin/softwareupdate' [8334]

MacBook Air :: Finder Crashes Using Firefox And Time Machine?

Jul 2, 2012

I have a MacBook Air  1.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM running OS X 10.6.8 with all software up todate today under this OS. I use Firefox 13.0.1 as a Browser.  I experience many Kernel Panic's and in some cases, the Finder, as noted in in the Force Quit pop-up quits completely.  I note this when using Firefox as a Firefox "lock-up" and most times a colored spinning wheel associated with Firefox.  Coincidentally, Time Machine is running during many of these occurrences.  Some times, the Finder, as well as all (not many) app's running at that time also display on Force Quit as being "lock-up" displayed in red letter in Force Quite and I must use the "shut off" button to restart.

Last week, I did a complete reinstall of the most current OS from an external disk following a complete examination of the system using the latest TechTools Pro software and then conducted a "rebuild" of the file structure and removal of all fragmentation and approved a new directory installation by TechTools Pro. I use VirusBarrier, with the latest updates, (Version 10.1.16), and have continuing scans for all that is available in that application. 

Time Machine backups are made over  What, if anything, might I do to restore this Mac to normal functioning.  I have other Mac Computers (portable and desktops) running the same OS version and and software.

Applications :: Transfer Personal Data From Home User To New User On Same MacBook?

Sep 3, 2009

I have tried very hard to find the answer to my transferring question, but nowhere do I find my answer nor does Apple offer free help or even help by email.

So here is my issue. I want to transfer all my personal data from my HOME user account on my MacBook to a NEW user account on the SAME MacBook. The reason is that my Microsoft Office has a certain issue that is only solvable by starting up in a new user. So now I want to transfer all the personality, data, files, and all that from my home user to the new user on the same computer. After that, I want to delete the old Home user and make the new user the default home user account.
