Prevent .DS_Store on remote filesystems

Just a quick link to an Apple’s article which explains how to disable .DS_Store creation on remote filesystems. Quoting the online document: “This will affect the user’s interactions with SMB/CIFS, AFP, NFS, and WebDAV servers.

  • Open a Terminal ;
  • Run the following command :

    # defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true

  • Restart or log-out / log-in.

That’s All Folks!
