Using the experimental build of TF… it still crashes, but when I fully uninstalled TF using AppZapper and reinstalled it the crashes doesn’t seems to happens anymore.
Before completely reinstalling TF and finding that what I think is the solution, I have found how to make crashing TF:
install TF - open TF - close all finder windows - open dropbox folder from app.
…and it was happening everytime I reinstalled the experimental build or others.
A little diary of my 2 hours of tries… (to read optionally :P)
I tried to remove all the files (except the shared folders) from my dropbox (5 folders). I waited to finish the sync but it still crashes. FYI one folder is protected from writing, others are shared and I’m the owner.
I also tried to completely uninstall TF using AppZapper, now the app seems to don’t crash but it takes 2-3 seconds since when I press on the dropbox folder for opening a new window with the dropbox files.
The app now works well, dropbox opens immediately without delays and re-using the same TF settings as before the app doesn’t crashes. I’m an old user of TF, maybe the problem was in a older release.
I also uninstalled the experimental build and installed the 1.7.11 and all still working fine.
I don’t know if it’s good because now I think we will never know what was the problem…
The funny thing is that all of it is happened in the machine with an activated copy of TF. I in my office iMac with same public beta build of OSX, and with the unregistered version, it never crashed, surely because the iMac on my office is newer and I started using TF on it when the bug was already solved, but before finding this solution at 2am, i was thinking that the problem could be caused by registering the product, strange but I thought I had tried all
I hope I did something useful for the developing of your amazing application instead of beings a loss of time for you. I’ll continue to try your beta versions and reporting eventual bugs.
Cheers and thank you for simplifying our working lifes with Total Finder! God bless you
