Mavericks: Slow Finder
So, I recently bought two new MacPros, both came with Mavericks. Finder has been acting up, being extremely sluggish, and beach balling all the time.
console app, I saw tons of this messages:
XPC error messaging com.apple.IconServicesAgent: Connection invalid
Fixed it by going to: Finder > View > Show View Options and turning off Show Icon Preview
Something else that was causing troubles was the fact that a new Finder window shows All My Files by default, changed that to a less populated directory.
