MacOS X 10.13 hangs on unsuccessful server access - how can I interrupt the bad process without
When this happens, I can see in Activity Monitor that Finder is not responding; but is there any other process running?
Most of my working files are on a local server. Occasionally, (cause unknown; maybe when network connection is momentarily lost), Finder hangs when I attempt a simple task, like opening a subfolder. Finder will not timeout and will not report an error. I'm trying to avoid force-quitting the Finder - that should/would be adequate, but I've had other problems not being able to re-launch Finder.
So far, I end up using
sudo restart now, or the power button.
