10.6: Use Archive Utility to make zip backups
Authored by: ekc on Oct 06, '10 10:18:09AM
I usually go with ditto -ck --sequesterRsrc to create the same type of zip files as the Finder. What sequesterRsrc does is it takes all those meta-data files (the ones beginning with ._) and sticks them in a separate directory called __MACOSX. That way they don't get in the way as much if you send your zip archive to a non-Mac user.
