Removing "._" files only problematic in very few cases
Authored by: hamarkus on Jun 27, '06 01:34:07PM

There are only a few file types (like certain types of font files) which cause problems when robbed of their resource forks. These files are most often related to the Mac OS and it is therefore highly unlikely that one would store these on a server.
If somebody knows what files types are affected in addtion to Mac fonts, please post it here.

I have been using BlueHarvest for quite a while and never had any problems. It, however, is far from perfect. While the cleaning function works flawlessly, the prevention of the creation of new "._" files works only partly.
