I recently upgraded my 2008 macbook pro's hard drive to 500GB. I used Carbon Copy to clone a bootable version of my then current 160GB drive. The boot drive volume name changed during the upgrade.
Post upgrade, when I use either the 'open' or the 'open with' context menu to, in particular, open a psd file in preview, nothing happens --> preview doesn't launch, there's no error dialog, and I don't find anything in the system logs that seems related.
If I launch the preview app and then open the file from within the application, preview opens it without issue.
Finder's preview pane view works as expected, displaying thumbnails of the image file contents. (If I recall correctly, and I'm pretty sure about this - only I'm not in front of the machine at this minute and can't confirm.)
I haven't determined whether this issue is limited to the preview app, or is generally the case when attempting to open files from within finder when using the 'open' or 'open with' context menu.
Any clue on what the problem is, and how to fix it so that the context menu works again?
Any suggestions on what else to check to further debug this?
