View Full Version : Purging .DS_Store and resource fork files from thumb drives

Jun 2, 2012, 12:49 PM
The only reliable way I've found to stop OS X from dumping all that junk onto a thumb drive is to do the deletion manually from Windows. :( Surely there's a copy filter program of some sort (Mac App Store, perhaps?) that I can use as a pass-through to rid the thumb drive of these files, which are useless to non-Macs, and further tend to confuse Windows systems?

I use the free ThinkerTool (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/5721/tinkertool) and use that application to stop those pesky files on windows formatted network drives. Sure you can do it manually with Terminal but not everyone is a code junkie.
