dot_clean

I keep forgetting this command – I just don’t use it often enough, so I thought I write it down to make it easier to find. I need it when I copy mp3 files to a SD card for the car.

The command to delete hidden system files in OS X is:

dot_clean folder/

Just to spell it out, you can see all files (including hidden ones) using:

ls -a
