Automatically delete Mac OS X dot files from MS-DOS filesystems
Authored by: afingal on Feb 07, '11 12:27:06PM

I wonder if it would make sense to use an AppleScript folder action or Automator workflow attached to the USB stick that would delete the dot files. That way you could have them deleted whenever the folder/volume is modified.

That was my very first thought. I tried, but I couldn't find a way to run an AppleScript just before the volume is ejected.
