When I click finder Favorites is at the upper left, then Shared; but no Devices are listed, such as Mac HD, or Places. It doesn't give me the option for Mac HD.
I'm looking at another Mac to see what should be there. How else might I find the info you want or get those things to show up in Finder?
It shows 199.87 of 249 available.
Didn't help. Disk utility said "SUID File has been modified and will not be repaired." Still getting the colored wheel when trying to do anything.
OK....did safe boot w/ no improvement. Verified Disk; said the volume Mac HD appears to be OK.
This process took a half hour. It takes 5-10 min. between clicks to respond. Next idea?
Is it time to go to the Mac store for help?
Logged out and then did a test user. It seems to work fine in test. Still in test mode now.
Did that. No luck...still unresponsive.
Did that. No change. Still taking 5-8 min. to respond to every click.
I am restarted. Next?
Pref's did reset. It seems to be working now. Not too many things on the desktop...10-12 files/folders. Will work with it for awhile and see how it goes. I'll get back to you. Thanks for your help so far....what a process!
