    Hi there-
    I'm using a Mac Mini to target-disk my Macbook in order to transfer my User folder and some of my Applications. When I browse the Macbook's Applications folder via my Mac Mini, Finder beachballs every time I scroll down to a certain point (about a quarter of the way down), and I have to Relaunch. If I jump to the end of the scroll bar, it beachballs. I've tried column view, list view, and icon view, but whenever it tries to display folder content past that point, it beachballs. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I've had this happen to me before. There was something happening with a certain file in the window that was causing it. I can't remember exactly what file it was or what the fix was though. You may want to try rebooting.
