I've started noticing that, after booting and launching all app that was on at the time of shut down, finder simply quit after ~10 sec and I have to turn it on manually. I didn't recall this issue before Mojave (but maybe it was allready like that, I barely turn off my laptop - just closing it).

It doesn't seems to crash as there is no warning like "finder quit unexpectedly" or anything...

When opening consol after finder quit, this output appear :

Disk utility check says everything's fine, and I just did a clean install as my MBP crashed during last update.

What could be the cause of Finder quiting after lauching all app ?

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017) version 10.14.4 (18E226)

EDIT :

I find out that when I open pCloud, Finder quit (but still not crash)

Consol output :

-[GUIApplicationLogout loadProccessesToQuitArray] | Checking app: pCloudFinderExt

  • When Finder quits, are you still able to see the files on your desktop? – abc May 15 at 3:30
  • No, but all app are running normally (I usually boot with iTunes, Firefox and Mail and I can listen to music, search the web...) I never tried to open another app though. – Edd Growl May 15 at 11:21
  • Check the Console app for any output relating to Finder. – abc May 15 at 20:23
  • @abc I just edit my question ! – Edd Growl May 16 at 20:58

Have you tried logging out & unticking the "Reopen windows when logging back in" option?

Else you may have corrupted user Caches/Saved Application States.. you could try removing the content of these folders & rebooting:

~/Library/Caches

~/Library/Saved Application States

  • Just did, same result. Finder quit when opening pCloud – Edd Growl May 17 at 20:32

After emailing pCloud advice, I get this answer :

Yes, this is a behavior that was desired - launching the virtual disk restarts Finder to support it. But we noticed that sometimes he does not want to restart depending on the machine and the OS. These are isolated cases, but we decided to launch the next update without this behavior. I hope very soon we will have it available.

So I´m guessing I just have to wait for the next update...

Meanwhile, I unchecked launch pCloud when starting the system inside pCloud app and disable it to the Login Items pane of System Preferences and no more issue !
