I have a ZFS based NAS that various platforms use for shared storage, namely Windows XP/7/8 and Linux.
I've noticed that Windows clients are creating Thumbs.db files left right and centre, which I do not want. It may seem extreme but I'd like to blacklist the creating of these files on the storage server. Presumably it's possible to tell Windows to stop trying to create them in the first place, but it will only take single glance at a directory before a yet to be configured client generates another one.
Is it possible to blacklist files being created on a FS based on the name? Does anyone foresee a problem in doing this (software will not be installed in these exports)?
Some advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
