TotalFinder not loading on Sierra

#1

I’ve been having problems for the last week or so with TotalFinder. Sometimes it loads at startup, then disappears. Sometimes it simply doesn’t load. However, in both instances, If I load it manually it works and usually continues to work until I shut down. When I restart the iMac the problem starts again. I’ve disabled SIP, uninstalled TotalFinder then restarted the iMac before re-installing. Then enabled SIP again, but still the problem persists. I recently had a similar problem with TotalSpaces and the procedure I’ve described seems to have cured the problem with that app.

Any thoughts?

iMac 21" 2017
MacOS Sierra 10.12.6
TotalFinder v 1.11.18

Isn’t Finder (with TotalFinder) crashing for some reason? When there is a Finder crash, system silently restarts Finder and TotalFinder is not automatically started again.

You could try to run my script and send me the report back to support@binaryage.com, I would take a look:

Thanks for the suggestion of a Finder crash. I’ve sent the report file as you requested, but in the meantime I’ve checked on apps I’ve recently added. The last one was pCloud Drive. I removed it from the startup menu and now TotalFinder loads at startup. That may have been the culprit.
