[Sticky] Notice: Temporary solution to Catalina Finder Hang (10.15.4)
This issue is resolved with 10.15.5 Catalina.
Apple fixed two important bugs:
The Finder hang on RAID volumes
Kernel panics with 16 drives (or more)
We HIGHLY recommend all Catalina users update to 10.15.5!
(and remember to run SoftRAID afterwards to reinstall the 5.8.3 driver)
We have a temporary solution to the Finder hang under Catalina:
Could you explain what this setting does and the risks of disabling SIP?
System Integrity Protection is one of the many protections Apple has added to OS X to minimize the risks of intrusions and hacks.
What it essentially does is try to block all "unidentified" developers from installing admin level code into your system.
It can also block "Identified" developers until you specifically approve their software/extensions from loading.
These protections have become very important to prevent bad actors from intruding into your System.
Sadly this is temporarily necessary to work around this bug, but we expect it to only be a few more weeks before a fix is released.
When SIP is disabled, just be more alert than normal to what new software you install, especially when you are asked for your admin password to install something.
Has there been any success with the issue on Catalina 10.15.5 beta?
10.15.5 was released yesterday, and in my testing so far, the bug is completely fixed.
