    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/, 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.



    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.
