These files get created at each level in the repository when a user creates content (uploads files) via WebDAV to the DAM.  There are actually two files I think... .DS_Store and _.DS_Store...

Is there a way to avoid this / correct it?

Thanks,

 

Rob.

Hi Rob,

would something like this work?

I don't have a mac to test this on.

I'm not sure if AEM is able to prevent it, if you'd require an AEM solution, this should be checked with the Support team
