Came across this tip about removing those files that Windows users love to complain about when you send them compressed archives

Basically open up a terminal (don’t be scared, it’s one of the coolest things in OS-X because it’s UNIX) and enter

find directory_name -type f -name .DS_Store -print0 | xargs -0 rm

Then compress the folder and send to the Windows user and they’ll never complain again (well they will always complain about their bloated OS 😛 j/k )

Check out the post here for more information
