Other Remarks

  • The items listed here still have their original box/packaging they came with. This may matter to some people so I thought I would mention it.
  • The computers will be “reset” and have the latest macOS installed.
  • Sold as-is – used equipment is unpredictable.  Please make sure you understand this before making an offer 🙂
  • Why am I selling?  I’m upgrading my computing hardware after several years.

Mavericks Finder Crash (loop)

Ran into what appears to be my first hassle with Mavericks.  Finder is crashing and restarting over and over.

Quick Internet search shows several folks out there having a similar experience.  Over on the Apple discussion forms it was suggested to try quitting (closing) Google Drive as this has been identified through cause and affect troubleshooting.

I have Google Drive installed, so I quite it (closed) and then observed… sure enough Finder stopped crashing.

Don’t know the root-cause so I’m hesitant to blame any one thing, although this sure does look like a Google Drive issue.

Here is the Apple discussion form on referencing Google Drive that I read.
