At our Prepress department I’ve updated some iMacs from Yosemite to High Sierra. When I search in Yosemite on the SMB fileserver for a specific file, I see after a while the search results in the Finder window. If I select a found file I see the full path in the Path bar at the bottom of this Finder window. (See the first screenshot.)
But when I do the exact same search command in High Sierra on this SMB fileserver, I see the same search results. But when I select a found file in these search results, I don’t see the file path. In stead of that I see only the icon of the file. (See the second screenshot.) Also the found files are showing blank file icons.
When I perform in High Sierra a search command on the internal drive or a USB stick the full path of the found file is visible.
I guess the absence of the file path in High Sierra has something to do with the SMB protocol. Apple has discarded the AFP protocol in High Sierra and uses SMB instead. Yosemite still uses AFP so i guess thats why the full file path is showing.
My question: is it possible to make the full file path visible again in High Sierra when selecting a file in the search results on a SMB server?
