ZipCleaner removes the .DS_Store files, which contain Finder settings and Spotlight comments
Version: 1.0ZipCleaner is a program that allows you to remove .DS_Store files and other resource information from zip-archives created by the Finder.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Creating zip-archives in the Finder is convenient. Unfortunately, they often contain items useless to people less fortunate, i.e. not using Macs. When they unzip such an archive, they can see .DS_Store files, Icon files and a __MACOSX folder.
By default ZipCleaner will remove all resource information in an archive. If you just want to remove .DS_Store files, you can press the option key when dropping a zip-file on ZipCleaner.
ZipCleaner was created to remove these files from the zip archives the Finder creates: just drop them on it. It also allows you only to remove the .DS_Store files, which contain Finder settings and Spotlight comments. To do that, drop an archive on ZipCleaner, while holding down the option key.
Warning: Removing all resource information from a zip archive can make included files, like applications, unusable! If you want to be save, unzip the archive and test the files. Removing only .DS_Store files should give no problems, though.
