[BUG] Calculate All Folder Sizes stops with inaccessible folders

Post by thifi » Sat Apr 25, 2020 11:23 am

Current behavior:
When a folder contains subfolders that are inaccessible to the current user, Calculate All Folder Sizes feature goes through the sort order to display folder sizes but stops the calculation as it reaches the first inaccessible folder.

Expected behavior:
Calculation should skip the inaccessible folder and continue without stopping.

How to reproduce:
The hidden "Library" folder in the current user's home folder should contain at least a couple of directories that are inaccessible (e.g. ~/Library/Calendars, ~/Library/Cookies). Go to "~/Library" and trigger Calculate All Folder Sizes. It will stop at the first inaccessible folder.

System:

Mojave 10.14.6

Let me know if you need more info.
