Avoid creation of those pesky ._ and .ds_store files
Authored by: billbarstad on Nov 30, '05 10:44:12AM

I have a small disk partition to store files and folders of materials for a friend who uses Windows. After installing BlueHarvest on my Panther (10.3.9) system I dropped in on the arrow, as instructed in the Cleaner tab. It found six .DS_store files, but failed to remove them. Phooey!

Same for me. Finds a lot .DS_store files but fails to delete them. Also does not delete any resource forks.

I cannot create a .Trash folder the SMB share in question, as it it tells me every time I am deleting a file it tells me that the file will be deleted immediatly.
Maybe that is why it does not work?
