So, on my desktop I have my HDD's as well as folders for important projects (so that I can be reminded of them constantly ). The problem is that I have the little "Show item info" option enabled so I can tell the remaining space of my drives primarily. On my project folders, it shows one more item than is actually in the folder. I used the terminal to show that it was a .DS_Store. Is there any way to make OS X ignore so it only shows my files in the folder. Otherwise, is there any way to get rid of the .DS_Store? Thanks for your help! Time for bed!
