Remove hidden OS X files from Windows volumes

The file names are ok but the quotes around the volume name will escape neither backquote (`) nor dollar ($).

True. Single quotes would probably do it instead of double ones, but I suspect it's better to use the AppleScript operator quoted form of instead.

After some experimenting and reading I share Andys recommendation. `quoted form of posix path of a' seems to be the the elegant solution.

Framing with single quotes would not handle correctly path names with single quotes but `quoted form' does
