Here's a script I run that will parse every folder on a given start drive letter and find and delete the hidden ".DS_Store" files that a mac creates on windows shares.
I run it once a week on my home based server as a scheduled task. Works a treat and I thought it might be useful to someone:
Save as .vbs, edit the START_FOLDER at the top and run or schedule it.Code:START_FOLDER = "D:\" PREFIX = ".DS_Store" Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") ProcessSubFolders oFSO.GetFolder(START_FOLDER), iCount Sub ProcessSubFolders(oFolder, iCount) Set cFiles = oFolder.Files For Each oFile In cFiles If Left(oFile.Name, Len(PREFIX)) = PREFIX Then oFile.Delete iCount = iCount + 1 End If Next For Each oSubFolder In oFolder.SubFolders ProcessSubFolders oSubFolder, iCount Next End Sub WScript.Echo "Files deleted: " & iCount
It reports back in a little pop up window how many files it has found and deleted.
I should mention, this is not my script so I take no credit.
AS ALWAYS, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
