Pls. Do this test. I have googled a lot and haven’t found answers on this odd bug. :mad:

Open Disk Utility. Run first aid, repair if have to. Open finder. Tell me did your files, folders disappeared or part of them. Don’t scare if so. Just restarted Mac. It will “fix” the bug. Don’t forget to tell have you FileVault enabled.

Thanks mate!

It seems that the reason to my bug is FileVault. Just disabled FV - issue is gone! Would be nice to know ho to fix this.

I have seen this triggered by different conditions. Seems like Finder bug, restarting Finder was fix - no reboot needed. It was ugly for a moment - looked like I lost lot of my data. What gave it up as Finder issue was that files could be seen in other applications. I am unable to reproduce anyway...

Made clean install today - again. I have now clean installed about 5 times since HS released, and haven't found solution for this annoying bug. :mad:

On my Mac it looks that the FileVault is really the reason for this bug, because every time when I disabling FV bug will go away. This starts drive me a crazy because otherwise my MBP & Hits Sierra ROCK 100% …blaah…:(

I'm not whining, and I haven't - my MBP running otherwise like it should. I have all rights to be disappointed and say it to loud! …and would be nice to find the solution cause this is not a part of the deal! 13 years with Apple computers, always start with clean install without zero issues and/or bugs and loved my Macs. Im just frustrated.

Yes
Non-synchronous update of Finder view has been intermittent problem for years.
As Honza1 says, restart Finder. That'll usually fix the problem
I doubt Apple will fix the problem at this point, as Finder has to deal with network devices that might not respond for a minute or two somewhat gracefully. Forcing Finder to update fast would likely mess with that.
It's a matter of balance.

Hey, Dude!

GOT THE SAME PROBLEM AFTER THE SECOND UPDATE OF HIGH SIERRA!

I've done clean install of 10.13.2 after Terminal "zeroed" my SSD — the issue remains.

I have FileVault ON.

That's the system, not my MBP for damn sure.


HAVE YOU FOUND ANY FIX????

Issue is still present on 10.3.3 b2. I just do a killall Finder in Terminal and all my files reappear.
I have filevault turned on and turning it off is not an option for me, but this workaround is easy to execute.

Yeah, I don't want to turn it neither.

I simply quit every app, do first aid on the volume, relaunch finder and then immediately restart mbp. It works, though I'm worried if this damages my files anyhow.

Gonna wait if they fix it in 10.13.3

I'd recommend reporting this via bugreport.apple.com.

Also happening to me, 10.13.2, Late 2013 Macbook Pro... Filevault enabled, run First Aid in Disk Utility and certain folders appear to be empty... reboot and the problem's solved.
