Admin keep closing posts here so there is no way to reply. Several people have posted about Path Finder being unable to access a lot of folders, etc. under Mojave. This is due to a new security "feature" but there is a way to improve things a bit.

You need to give Path Finder access to application data or it's pretty limited in what it can do.

Open System Preferences, click on Security & Privacy. Click on Privacy tab up top. Click on Application Data on the left. Unlock by clicking on the lock (lower left) and your password. At the bottom of the program list on the right click the +. Search for Path Finder in your Application folder and select it.

Now Path Finder can access almost everything, with a few system locked down areas that are still off limits

    Seems like the "Application Data" option is not available in the latest Mohave [10.14 Beta (18A365a)]. There is a "Full Disk Access" option, which I selected.
