Remove dot underscore files in windows share

If you are using mac and have windows samba share mounted, mac creates the “dot underscore” ._ files everytime a file is created or .DS file when folder is browsed. Very ugly.

Easy fix:

1. open up terminal.

2. paste this in

“defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores TRUE

3. All done.
