Ds Store Remover

Easily delete .DS_Store files with DS Store Remover!

DS Store Remover allows you to delete .DS_Store files contained in the specified directories (recursively).
Directories can be added using a open directory dialog or by drag and dropping them on the application.

As a bonus, DS Store Remover optionally deletes Thumbs.db files.

.DS_Store (Desktop Services Store) is a hidden file created by Mac OS X to store custom attributes of a folder such as the position of icons or the choice of a background image.

By default, the Mac OS X Finder will create a .DS_Store file in every folder that it accesses, even folders on remote systems (for example, folders shared over an SMB or AFP connection).

These .DS_Store files can be really pesky in a multi-platform network environment, they can basically just lead to unnecessary filesystem clutter that Windows & Linux users receive no benefit from.
