    Moving files to a NTFS Hard drive leaves ._ files anyway to stop this?

    I have installed Macfuse and Ntfs-3G so I can copy files to NTFS hard drives.

    However this always leaves behind the files name ._(Whatever the file you just transfered is called) is there a way to stop this happening as after a while this could clog up the drive if not monitored.

    ANy ideas on this would be great.

    No way to stop it but unless you have a reason to keep a copy of the file on your internal drive that you just copied to the external NTFS drive, erase the left behind names.

    Sounds like you need the FinderCleaner!
    There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.
