I work in an environment where a Macintosh user and I (a Windows user) work together. The Macintosh user generates files starting with
._ If they access a file called
foo, they’ll create a
._foo file in the same directory.
I'm annoyed by these files when the Macintosh user accesses a lot of files, as it makes my Explorer look very cluttered.
How can I hide these files?
- I can keep deleting them, but they'll just reappear. It also seems the Macintosh user notices performance differences after I've deleted them.
- I can't hide hidden files, there are hidden files which I have to access.
- I can't change any settings on the Macintosh user's system.
Is there a way for me to hide all files starting with
._, effectively hiding the problem?
