I regularly back up my MacBook Pro with Retina display 15 inches running OSX 10.8.4 using Time Capsule. The backup go fine.


I have just recognized that when I restore my Mac from Time Machine when Adobe CC go wrong, Finder crash every time after boot up. finder will appear momentarily and then close, with crash report in the Console.


Together with this, Google Drive will also fail and very hard to get it back to work as it should be. disconnect, reconnect, remove, reinstall, remove Google Drive folder will not help.


My solution is to restore OSX and then everything will start working OK. I can then log in to Google Drive and it will run fine. finder will o longer crash.


I suspect that Google Drive isthe culprit that fail restore process of Ime Machine and cause Finder to crash after every reboot following the restore process.


I have come across this article and it confirm that Oogle Drive is the cause of Inder crash after restore from Time Machine

    The problem still persist that Finder will crash after time machine restore with Google Drive running when oing backup. The ul print is with Google Drive.


    Any experts here experiencing this problem? What I have to do is to log out from Google Rive when doing Time Machine backup and have to set Time Machine to turn off automatic backup.


    Help fix this please

    Talk to Google.  Sounds like Google wrote a broken plug-in for Finder (Finder plug-ins are unsupported).

    Google is known to be the lousiest companion this planet when it come to support. There's nowhere can I contact Google Drive team over email,phone, or chat. Clicking on contact us show that there is o contact option.
