SMB on 10.1 and the
Authored by: myersm on Oct 04, '01 10:08:43AM

The "special" files are a bit annoying.

I am saving PDFs to a WinNT sharevolume from within Acrobat Reader. In addition to the data file, it is also creating a separate file for the resource fork:

somefile.pdf
._somefile.pdf

Is this a behavior that the OS could perform conditionally? It's all unix under the hood, right? Couldn't programs check to see if the fstype of the destination volume was smbfs and act accordingly -- omit the resource fork?

In the meantime, I will have an agent delete these special files on an hourly basis.
