This is just what I needed. I used some crappy folder sync program that hosed my external drive and filled it with "._" files... This was able to clear it right up and get all those junkies outta there.

Thumbs up.

Beware, if you brought over any "Classic Carbon" apps from an older Mac because they still run under Rosetta, or any old classic Font files, removing the resource fork WILL destroy them.

Please e-mail a list of all invisible Mac files you want to be included as delete worthy.

Other comments/questions/requests always welcome.
But please e-mail them.

This way I can figure out exactly what people want.

Thank You

I use everyday a USB Flash Drive to transfer data between my home Mac and my school PCs. This script have solved in great part my greatest problem: invisible Mac files!

If it could also remove Thumbs.db, index.dat, .DS_STORE and other Win and Mac invisible files, this would be a dream come true on my USB key!

Suggestion for the author: Include a way for the user to set default behavior. For example, I would like to be able to use this script just by double clicking on it so it would automatically recognize my drive by it's name and do it's job, no question asked.

There are so many bits and pieces of so many other scripts that I can't remember them all. So I thank you if something you did is in here.
