Hi, I have MacBook Pro with OS 10.8.2. Since last couple of months, I have noticed that my Finder gets really slow frequently. Which means, it doesn't display the contents of a folder and you see a spinning wheel in the status bar at the bottom. Specially it doesn't display the contents of a folder where files are being written continuously.(for example: I am processing some data which generates files in a folder). Whenever, it goes into this mode, Activity monitor shows that mds process is taking up close to 1GB Virtual memory. This happens even when I have 3gb of free memory or 2 gb or 1gb or 500mb. So basically it happens anytime. I also checked spotlight at the top right corner and it doesn't show "Indexing" message. So, am confused what is happening. At the same time, sometimes windowserver process also pops up at the top of the list,taking up more virtual memory. Most of the times, I have to restart my machine to get out of this mode. Disk check using Disk utility doesn't show any problem. Any idea, any suggestions? PS: I have Dropbox, Skydrive and Tonido Server apps installed on my computer.
