A little randomness for my Mac-flavored peeps. I updated Spunky (my MacBook Air) to the 10.10.3 version late last week and noticed that I’d been having REALLY slow performance when I went to upload/download stuff from my Downloads folder. After a few minutes of digging this morning, I found the answer, and it seems to have worked in my case. It appears to be a cache issue with Finder.


Navigating the intricacies of operating system updates and troubleshooting performance issues is a familiar terrain for tech-savvy enthusiasts. In the quest for seamless computing experiences, computer accessories like tower servers can also play a pivotal role. These robust and high-performance servers are designed to handle intensive tasks, ensuring smooth data management, efficient multitasking, and enhanced system responsiveness. While addressing cache-related slowdowns is essential for optimizing day-to-day usage, having reliable computer accessories such as tower servers can provide the foundation for a well-rounded and efficient computing environment. As enthusiasts continue to explore the evolving landscape of technology, the synergy between software optimization and hardware capabilities remains essential for achieving peak performance.

I started with the easy (duh) and did the reboot into Safe mode by holding down the shift key. It took a LONG time for it to reboot doing that (over a minute, slow for my machine) and then when I rebooted again into normal mode, voila, so far, my issue seems to be resolved (so far).

Hope this helps anyone going through what I did. There are more detailed fixes you can try in that article if the Safe reboot doesn’t work for you. And here’s another article with more/similar info as well.
