    After recent OS updates I have noticed hugely increased spinning beach ball
    I used to get them occasionally, but now get them almost as soon as I boot up and then mostly whenever a new activity starts
    Anyone else got this problem?

    Hello,

    -Which Mac model again?
    -Which version of OS X did you upgrade from and to?
    -Has the system had enough time to update Spotlight indexes?
    -Do you get the SBOD when using certain apps?

    Hi
    Mac mini, with 16gb ram and 250gb external ssd as start up, plus other external drives for backup and photos
    High Sierra, the very latest update about a week ago, sorry forget number and am on ipad
    Updates now at least 7 days old
    Most apps at start up, but always on Safari

    One thing I finally found out is that if I have either of my external drives (each contain Samsung 850 Pro 512 gig SSDs) to either of my Macs (I am on High Sierra V10.13.3), the start up times are slow. Booting from my internal SSD without either external SSD connected is much faster.
