Fixed: Slow Macintosh File Dialogs

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Tue, 07 Feb 2017 11:05:34 GMT

I have been plagued for quite a while now with a two or three second wait every time I invoke the open or save file dialog on my Macintosh (running El Sierra). I finally did a Google search and found a solution. Less than a second now! Yay!

In a shell:

cd ~/Library/Caches/CloudKit
rm CloudKitMetadata
rm CloudKitMetadata-shm
rm CloudKitMetadata-wal
killall cloudd
