You may encounter issues if you are updating  your operating system to OS X 10.9 (Maverick).  One particular issue affects how the OS indexes files.  (keep reading for a simple fix).

First off, make sure your video editing software is supported before updating to Maverick 10.9.X

  • Avid Media Composer:  Requires MC 7.03 to run on Maverick Correctly.
  • Final Cut Pro X:  You cannot upgrade to FCP X 10.1 if you are not running Maverick
  • Adobe Premiere: If you are running on the Creative Cloud, it will automatically provide you with free updates to run correctly on Maverick.

After updating to Mac OS X 10.9 (Maverick), you may discover that the finder runs slugish when you first start the computer.

At GeniusDV, we have encountered this issue across eight different models of various iMacs and Mac Book Pro's.

Fortunately, there is a simple fix.

  • Launch the terminal utility from the Mac HD / Applications / Utlities folder.
  • Paste the following text into the command line of the terminal and press the return key: 
     rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist&&killall Finder

Please note: If you perform this function, the preferences for the finder will reset back to the default values.  This will result in theMac HD icon disappearing from the desktop. 

To change this:

  • Navigate to the Finder menu and choose preferences.
  • A dilouage box will appear. 
  • Within the general preferences tab, turn on the option to show Hard Disks.

Turn Hard Disk on.pngOkay, now the finder will operate correctly when navigating between folders directories.

Note:  If you have multiple user accounts, you will have to repeat this process for each individual user.
