I have a drive with a lot of mp3's in folders. It's littered with the resource forks. The programs I once used to clean folders no longer work in mavericks, because of course they don't. Googling for answers has failed....so I decided to try doing some scripting and/or automating. This script works for individual folders Code: set srcFolder to choose folder set file_path to srcFolder as alias as string set pfile_path to POSIX path of file_path tell application "Terminal" activate delay 1 do script "cd \"" & pfile_path & "\"" delay 1 do script "ls -a> test.txt" in window 1 do script "rm ._*" in window 1 do script "ls -a> test2.txt" in window 1 delay 1 quit "Terminal" end tell but I've failed in figuring out how to get Applescript to travel through subfolders. In Automator I actually have a Zap Resource Fork action....which seems to no longer work, and while it can traverse subfolders, getting it to execute the script in a useful way isn't really going my way either. So, I guess the question I have before I invest more time in this...is there a better way to do this?
