Prevent creating ._* files

Go to solution Solved by MarcelCliff,

I want to prevent that MacOs (via SMB) is creating ._* files on Unraid (6.11.3)


I looked the video from Spaceinvader (18:28)


and added "veto files = / ._*/.DS_Store/" to my settings.


Unfortunately these files are still created.


Do I miss something?


Thanks in advance.

In the thread for this video it is mentioned, that currently there is a bug in samba which causes the veto files feature not to work:


You can install the User Scripts plugin, which has a prepared script to delete these files.
