Question: Finder Problem on High Sierra

Model Name: Mac mini

Model Identifier: Macmini6,2

Processor Name: Intel Core i7

Processor Speed: 2.3 GHz

Memory: 16 GB

When using the Finder in cover flow, The document you are on flickers (or not) and disappear .

You can see the other doc on the left and right.

Go on the right or left document and it will disappear too, the previous document being now visible on the right or left.

The first time I used finder in cover flow mode the document

on the right and left were flickering between focus and blurry. But the main document in the middle was there.

So at the moment High Sierra is a bit instable with trouble on some app as One password, Dropbox, Drobo.

I have red there is an array of troubles with Finder, I don't think mine was listed yet.

Soon an update for the troubled Finder?

L3 Cache: 6 MB

Memory: 16 GB

Mac mini, macOS High Sierra (10.13.1), null

The 29/11 security update has solved the problem, the flickering Finder.

And has solved:

  • About this Mac -> Storage : always calculating
  • About this Mac -> Storage ->Manage -> Empty Trash Automatically: alway loading
  • About this Mac: wrong disc size

-“You can’t change the startup disk to the selected disk / Running bless to place boot files failed.”

-“Unable to find boot helper partition”

-“Could not create a reboot volume for APFS install”

-“Sandbox creation failed: Container objects initialisation failed”

-“You don’t have permission to save the file “Application Support” in the folder “Library”

-System Preferences -> iCloud -> Find my Mac: Recovery partition Required

So I had all this nicety because I wanted to do a clean install…!!!

All seems to work since the security patch : Security Update 2017-001.
