I have an old imac mid 2010 with upgraded ram and ssd that works really well. I mostly use it for coding and I did not updated / installed any new apps lately.
Since 24hours ago:
- finder seems to be broken (cannot launch it)
- cannot access the cmd+space finder
- all files in desktop disappeared
Everything else seems to be working. The computer seems to be fine except that. I have access to chrome, spotify, terminal etc through the shortcuts clicking on the bottom menu bar.
Following some instructions, I have tried to locate ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist and there is nothing.
I would like to understand what is happening and fix it. I have run:
sudo sysdiagnose -f ~/Desktop
Here is the result https://pastebin.com/ehp52jBR
