Is this an issue with Finder or the external drive?

No, video and photos both. It’s usually happening with few specific folders.

Last few times after copying pasting files I disconnect both drives. After reconnecting I clear quick look cache before accessing the drives and so far I haven’t faced the thumbnails issue.

I'm really not sure why it does that.

At this point, it sounds to me that there's a defect in the Quick Look component of macOS. Something among the lines of it processing files before they're fully on the drive.

Thanks for your help Ed. Really appreciate it. I think you are right - it probably has something to do with macOS Quick Look. Maybe an update will fix this? Let me see if I run into any more issues.

Meanwhile, can you help with me another problem. Few days back I had installed free touchbar app from Github called Pock. It didn't work as expected and I uninstalled it. But since then the volume and screen brightness controls on my touchbar has vanished. Everytime I need to change the brightness or volume I have to go to the control centre. Any ideas?

It's been a while since my MacBook Pro's Touch Bar was functional. You can quickly modify it or reset it to its default set (same process as modifying): https://support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/mac-help/mchl5a63b060/11.0/mac/11.0

Lol is that so? I quite like the touch bar - when it works! Shame they don't do much to improve it. Thanks for the link!

And regarding the Touch Bar, mine has a hardware issue. It’s just not worth spending any more money on the laptop. I already spent close to the initial price of the computer for various repairs (some self-inflicted).

Oh wow. The link you shared helped me solve my touch bar issue. So thanks for that! How old is your machine?
