Have reported this multiple times as have others, and yes I am pretty sure I even provided a sample of the process. Keep having to quit PF or just not use it since it starts hogging memory (as much as 17 GB). Just now it went over 2 GB on an 8-GB machine.

Any eta on a fix? Please-this often keeps me from even bothering to open PF.

BTW, I recently did the stock advice and uninstalled and reinstalled PF. As you can see, that didn't work.

Bottom line: keep the app open and use it as normal, and it will end up slowing down or even stopping your computer. It did that to mine, which is how I noticed the 17 GB RAM use in the first place.

    Hoping this is resolved soon — I am not using Path Finder now.
