Running OS X 10:13:3 / Pathfinder 7.6.2. When I attempt to copy multiple files, pathfinder hangs, sometimes files will copy but will take much too long to do so. More frequently, the program just hangs and does not copy the files. I have to force quit pathfinder to exit.

    Hi Rob, 

    Thanks for reaching out! 

    Please follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists: 

    1. Open your terminal and paste the following command to check if Path Finder has been slapped with the quarantined extended attribute:
      xattr /Applications/"Path Finder.app"

    2. If you see com.apple.quarantine returned as output from that last command, then go ahead and run this next command:
      xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/"Path Finder.app"

    You won't get any feedback or output from that command, but that's okay because you can just run the first command again to see for yourself if the com.apple.quarantine attribute shows up again. It shouldn't, and now Path Finder is freed from Apple quarantine jail. Restart your PathFinder now. 

    Let me know how it goes.

    Best Regards,
    Jordan

    Thank you for your quick response. Ran the command and did not get a result. (Blank).

    Hi, 

    Do you perhaps have copying verification turned on?

    Please, open Path Finder and click in the menu bar on Path Finder -> Preferences -> Features -> File Operation and uncheck "Verify Copied Files". 

    Let me know how it goes.

    Best Regards,
