  • Ignore HFS Metadata Files (dot underscore)

    What is the best way to ignore the HFS metadata files? It would be great if BOTH the name prefix "._" could be used with the 4kb file size to disqualify the file.

    Hello,

    We don't have a connected Exclude filter for both Name and Size, but in most cases using -._* to exclude based on the name is sufficient to exclude this type of file.

      Is the first character in the example above a hyphen? If so, will BC handle this hyphen as the file not having a name before the extension?

        If you are typing in the Folder Compare's Session menu -> Session Settings, Name Filters tab, Exclude Files section, type just:
        ._*

        Click Ok, and this translates to -._* in the toolbar. The toolbar syntax uses - to represent Exclude. The * also is a mask for "rest of the file name", so this is matching on files with the prefix of ._
