    hi guyz.

    you know you can see DS_Store and something in your usb or memory in windows if you put usb or memory into OSX.


    they aren't take many disk space. but i don't want them.

    do you know how to prevent osx make those things?

    Oh, yea I hate those files lol. But yea, I don't think there's any way to stop OS X from creating them.

    Get Onyx. There should be an option in there to disable .DS_Store files.

    This used to work in Tiger. It may work in SL, but I haven't tried it. Just open up Terminal and type in:

    defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true
