copying a file no problem using OS finder but error's out on every file with pathfinder latest update 8.5. Copying a 6.6gb folder. Copying from a network shared drive to a local backup drive.

file attached. this error pops up over and over and doesn't happen at all with os finder.

    Hi everyone,

    Please update your Path Finder to just released version 8.5.1 (build 1964). That one should finally fix both "Bad address" errors and also performance issues that appeared as a consequence of one of the previous fixes.

    Please let us know it this update works okay for you and whether you still get "Bad Address" errors.

    Regarding file copying performance, the biggest improvements in version 8.5 (and consequently 8.5.1) can be observed when copying large folder hierarchies with a lot of files inside on the same APFS volume (it really can be up to three times faster). In other cases, you can see anything from moderate speed improvements to same performance as in the previous version (8.3.9). Wi'll certainly continue with efforts to improve file operation performance and reliability.

    Sorry about all inconvenience. Thanks for your time, patience and support.

    Hi everyone,

    Please update your Path Finder to just released version **8.5.1 (build 1964)**. That one should finally fix both *"Bad address"* errors and also performance issues that appeared as a consequence of one of the previous fixes.

    Please let us know it this update works okay for you and whether you still get *"Bad Address"* errors.
