Any way to see a feature to delete those pesky .Apple* AFP folders? It's really a public nuisance when I mount shares from my *nix box!

Very nice app. I burn a lot of DVD backups that I use on both Macs and PCs and there is nothing more frustrating than seeing hundreds of those darn .DS_Store files on a Windows machine. Any Windows machine will show a .DS_Store file, so deleting them is a necessity for me. One thing I would like to see, in a future release, is the ability to drag and drop a folder onto the app, instead of having to select it via a dialog menu. Other than that, the app is a real time saver for me. P.S. A message to Roxio: Why doesn't Toast automatically delete these files when burning a Cross Platform Hybrid CD/DVD? It only makes sense to do so.

it makes sense when saving folders to a M$ server. I only access some of the folders on my work server, but the folders in the pathway all have .ds files. I guess the IT guys get frustrated, but it also shows that we were there. Just use Cocktail and choose the specific folder and in to make you feel even better fix your permissions. 2 birds 1 stone.

this is kinda dumb, you only see .DS_Store files if you are viewing invisible files... and they store the view properties of a folder, like icon size and other stuff..... why would you want to delete them???

I like the idea, but does it limit it to folders? Or drives? Or what? I don't want them all gone, do i?
