Hi,
on my Mac Pro 5.1 with El Capitan i have change a hd with a new ssd SanDisk Ultra II.
In the hd i had my home folder.
I cloned the hd with CCC on ssd.
After changed Finder is very slow. I cannot use it.
I delete the ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist, but nothing change.
I insert the new ssd in the Spotlight/Privacy and Finder work butter, but sometimes it's slow and cannot search in the ssd.
Also problem is that when i need to save a file with a app the mask is very slow.
To change dir or select file past minutes.

Help me.

Thank's

Max

Resolved: it was a iCloud Drive. I stopped it and now Finder work fine!!!!

Your SSD is best when you use SATA 3 PCIe rather than stock drive bay sleds.

PCIe "blades" cost but hugely popular for utmost performance.

More detail.

Nah. Mac Pro has great PCIe slits - it's a tower made for expansion - not a laptop. Even my 2006 1,1 has PCIe blade , just not bootable which req 2008 UEFI 64.

As for Spot, shouldn't be an issue. When cloning, use CCC and checksum on all files copied in adv prefs.

A PCIe adapter is cheap $25 or less, then XP951 (?) or OEM Apple Samsung M.2 blade.

Native SATAII holds you back to 250MB/sec r/w speeds.
