Also need an option to delete only ORPHANED ._ files.
eg. When a file ._archrux.jpg has no corresponding archrux.jpg file, then it's okay to delete the ._archrux.jpg file.

Please note that this app is mainly used to clean shares/volumes from ALL ._* files.
Its purpose is to completely remove Mac-only data, in this case you don't wan to save some resource.
In addition I would like to remember that resources in Mac document dramatically decreased, now they mostly contain a custom icon.

Great little AppleScript!

Yes, it could be a dangerous thing to use, but I wanted to delete all the .DS_Store and ._xxxx files that got created when I dropped MP3 files onto my Jukebox via an SMB share. MP3 files have no resource fork, so it was safe.

I do wish I had an idea that it was working, but I did have it sort through 80 GB of MP3s, all in nested directory structures, and it completed in just a couple minutes!

Deleting the resource fork files along with the .DS_Store files is throwing the baby out with the bathwater!

The Windoze IT administrators want the useless clutter of .DS_Store files done away with; but deleting the resource fork files render storage of many Mac files utterly useless!

We need a user preference option to NOT delete resource fork files!!!!!!
