comment Mavericks Finder hangs on tagging
Is it really linked to OS X? I had problems with the Finder hanging, and found out that my Cloud sync solution was transparently updated in the background, and the newer version had a bug with the Finder. It was easy to verify for me, when the cloud sync client was not running, Finder behaved normally. Do you have third party software running in the background that could cause such troubles?

comment Finder slow/freeze under Mavericks
I did check and repair of the permissions and disk, and it did found a few minor problems (iBooks App permission or free space blocks). But I still have the problem in the icon view.

comment Finder temporary freeze when copying to network drive (Mavericks)
No sorry :-( In the mean time I have also upgrade to OS X 10.9.1 and I am rather unhappy. No big visible changes and it is buggy. We have a lot of problem with switching users which can take about 1 minute. And we have also freezes when we plug in or out peripherals (esp. thunderbolt once). The weird thing is reverting the change (so plugging out after plugging in) usually unfreeze the Mac... This is so unstable...

@pechar OK so we have to concentrate on OS X to find a solution. Could you try to perform a test transfer in the following 2 conditions: read the steps from discussions.apple.com/message/21236125#21236125 (message from Linc Davis)

If rsync is slightly slower than the "hanged" Finder, then the copy works fine from Apple's OS X, but it seems that the finder is buggy showing how it updates. Did you experience other hang like that one when copying from one Mac to another via network? (I'm asking the question because I have the feeling that Synology is not at fault here)

Alright, I will start an answer to detail you steps to investigate at least the problem.

One question: are you connected via WiFi or via an Ethernet wire? If you were via WiFi, try to use a wired connection to see if you have the same behaviour or not.
