I used Dropbox on mac recently and that Synced some files with windows. Now I'm not using a mac anymore and there's a file named
._Icon that refuses to go away.
I am not able to delete it, nor am I able to rename it.
The error message I get while deleting is
The file name you specified is too long or not valid.
Here is the directory listing
Directory of D:\Dropbox 20-03-2012 19:46 <DIR> . 20-03-2012 19:46 <DIR> .. 08-01-2012 14:18 29 .dropbox 02-10-2011 13:12 291,232 ._Icon
How do I get rid of this, It's not a very big file but its presence is irritating. Also do we have something like gitignore for Dropbox.
