Question: Finder crashes when moving files from search (High Sierra)
I moved to High Sierra last week, since then I've had some issues with Finder. The most recent one is that when I attempt to move a group of files from a search to a folder that already contains some of those files, Finder hangs. I can reproduce this every time.
Here's an example: if I have a folder called 'bob's files' and all the documents are called 'bob[n]' (so bob100, bob 102 etc.). I do a search in Finder for 'bob' and realize that there's some files that aren't in the directory. I select all the 'bob' files and attempt to move them to the 'bob's files' folder. Whenever I do this, Finder hangs. If I go through every single file and manually deselect all the ones that are already in the folder (which is super tedious) I can move the files as expected.
Can anyone provide any suggestions on how this can be fixed?
