    Is there a convenient app/service/something for deleting the resource forks off drives..like fat32 drives shared often between PC's and Macs?

    I used to use Finder Cleaner, which worked well and ejected the drive, but it doesn't run on Mountain Lion. (PPC only).

    Worth mentioning that some resource fork data is essential to the file, and deleting it can have consequences.

    but not in jpg or movie files where they just clutter up menus.

    I use an automator action called ZapRezForks for this purpose. Works great!
