Clean .DS_Store, .Trash, and ._resources files prior to copy
Authored by: joeyblades on Mar 09, '10 01:53:55PM

I think it's bad practice to delete these files all willy-nilly in the source directory. It's better to move them first, then remove them from the destination directory.

I have a little bash script I run for this and it even has a failsafe to prevent running in the wrong directory. If I get time later this evening, I may add it to this thread.
