DXPurge: Auto-Remove Junk Files While Transferring Data From Mac OS X To Windows Share
PDF Print E-mail

Often, when you transfer files and folders from Mac OS X to Windows via flash drives, memory cards and external drives, Mac OS X creates junk files (like .DS_Store) in each folder present in your removable storage medium. Although these files usually remain hidden to the user, they consume precious storage space, and since these files have no use in Windows, you may want to get rid of them. Removing all the junk files yourself may prove to be quite a tedious task, as one has to enable the show all hidden files option from the Folder Options dialog, and then manually remove the hidden, junk files. Wouldn’t it be convenient if you could quickly delete all the junk files in one go? DXPurge does just that. It’s a Windows application designed to get rid of junk files transferred from Mac OS X to your external storage medium. All you need to do is to drag the folders that you copied from Mac over the application window, and it will automatically remove all the junk files present within them.

The screenshot below displays a set of files imported from Mac OSX, contained in a USB flash drive.


Now what you need is to drag the folder over the application window and it will instantly remove the unwanted files. You may drag multiple folders at the same time. It also lets you enable Create Zip option to create a copy of all the files present inside the folder.


After successfully purging the folder, you will now see that your folder only contains files that were originally meant to be moved.


You may also select Preferences from Help menu to bring up the settings console, which contains 3 tabs namely Settings, Export and System. Here, you can enable/disable Don’t prompt me for confirmation when accessing web sites  and Create a Zip archive options. Additionally you can specify custom folder for the Zip archive from Export tab.


The application is available for free and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit OS editions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
