Automatically remove "._" files from Windows shares
Authored by: drowe on Jun 28, '06 01:01:36PM
This hint is for removing the files from a Windows share. These junk files serve no purpose on a Windows box. Windows fonts don't depend on them, Microsoft Office on a Windows box don't depend on them, they are just an annoyance.

Automatically remove "._" files from Windows shares
Authored by: kaih on Jun 29, '06 02:20:38AM

If it's purely a windows share, then these files shouldn't have been there in the first place. Remove them.
If the share point is shared between windows and os x, then removing them can potentially cause problems - if you're a windows admin and you want to go through and trash every dot-underscore file off your sharepoints, you need to be aware of the repercussions.
