I've had my USB pocket drive for a while now, it comes in pretty handy transferring documents and programs to and from school. At my school we have Macs running OS 8.6 to 10.3.x, and Windows machines running 98SE, 2000, and XP. Every time I plug my USB drive into an OS 8.6/9.1 Mac, it creates all these hidden files, and the same with OS 10.2 and up. The files are all over the place, they are most commonly named .DS_Store, and Finder.dat. I find these very annoying, and was wondering if there is any way to avoid these hidden files? What do you people do to try and avoid them?
