Mac OS X - prevent creation of hidden files .DS_Store ...

Postby calimero » Fri Aug 10, 2018 9:12 pm

Hi,
I just start using CF card from Falcon (formated using Petari HD Driver) on Mac OS X to copy data on it
and Mac OS X create bunch of hidden files that only he use: .Spotlight-V100, .fseventsd, .Trashes ...

Is it possible to prevent creation of this folders?

Or there is some good solution to delete them from all FAT16 partition when you eject drive?


Thanks!

One answer to your question is found here, but sadly it seems the suggested method doesn't work with recent MacOS. I haven't looked at the software solution advised for more recent MacOS, because it seemed like too big a hammer for a minor problem.

I just try BlueHarvester and it do good job on deleting Mac OS hidden files on external USB/CF disks!

I just add my CF card to Spotlight "Privacy" settings (this prevent Spotlight indexing).

I think I am good to go now :)
