Best Solution Yet
Authored by: simbalala on Nov 30, '05 09:43:10AM

I've got a couple server accounts which support WebDAV which means I can mount those as disks directly in the Finder like any other disk, it's very convenient. Even for editing with BBEdit there's an advantage to using this technique although BBEdit allows "editing" via ftp or sftp. When you edit with ftp the modified date and time is sometimes confusing because of the temp file which BBEdit saves as you work. With WebDAV the date and time remain understandable. It's also sometimes very convenient to just pop open a remote file with TextEdit.

Anyways...

I've implemented the Terminal based fixes I've found here to stop the creation of the .ds_store files but I always seemed to lose the "feature" after a while for one reason or another. ONYX could not stop them either.

Blue Harvest did not seem to stop them at first either but then I added the mounted disk as a folder within the DS_Stores tab and it works just fine.

Probably the best thing is the prevention of those pesky little ._whatever.xxx files, no more hunting them down, they're like weeds. I added all the common extensions which I use to the Resources tab.

I've already sent Ross a donation, it's worth it.
