    I use my mac with other pc computers on lan. I copy paste files from mac os x to windows.
    I also run parallels on my mac and I copy paste files from mac to windows.

    The problem is the mac os x hidden files.

    I want to know how can I copy files from osx to windows without copying unnecessary mac osx hidden files.
    It is very annoying to sit in front of windows and have a mess of osx hidden files around.

    Is there any workaround to copy only the original files omitting hidden osx system files? (_filename etc)

    I will try it.
    I forgot to mention the problem with usb flash drives.

    I got an application called 'better finder properties' which is supposed to help with the situation above.

    I selected specific folders to omit the creation of these invisible files.

    Not system folders or root.

    Is there any chance of having stability problems in osx?
