Pathfinder 9.3.2 (2049) on Mac OS 10.14.6 Doesn't finish sizing folders, even though I've asked it to.

I'm staring at my pathfinder view of my home directory and I'd say approximately 40% of my folders have not been sized. They are not inaccessible due to permissions. Pathfinder seems to just forget to size them. I've left this on overnight to see if it was just slow.

    I have full disk access enabled for Pathfinder.

    I didn’t really want to give you a screenshot, hence my going to great lengths to describe it unambiguously.

    But here you go

    Hi Neil,

    Thanks for getting back to us!

    The reason why not all your folders are being sized is because you don't have "Calculate all sizes feature" enabled. 

    You can enable it by launching your Path Finder > navigate to View in the Menu Dock > Show View Options (or clicking Command + J) in your folder > checkmark option Calculate all sizes at the bottom.

    Please feel free to write us back, and we will be happy to assist you.
