Automatically remove "._" files from Windows shares
Authored by: neuralstatic on Jun 27, '06 08:18:13AM

just to state the obvious: for active mac use, these files will jsut come back.

i guess this is handy if you know a mac will never mount that smb volume again.

Automatically remove "._" files from Windows shares
Authored by: Rilex on Jun 27, '06 09:45:32AM

The reason I made it was because a user over at Apple Discussion Forums had software that would not function with the ._ files. Since this script will constantly monitor a directory, the files would be cleaned up in time for the daily run of this piece of software.

But this script can really be used to purge any file containing any set of characters, not just "._".
