  1. Hi All,

    I had copied some files- including ISO files to my USB drive from MAC Mini Intel.When I use the USB drive in WinXP, I see 5-6 copies of the same file but only one on Mac !!!

    What is going on?

    Thanks

    Do all of the multiple copies appear on the USB drive with none on the C: drive?
    Are you able to right click on any of them to look at properties?

    Yes, they all appear on USB and I am able to look at the properties-they are identical. But, if all of them were real then I would have run out of space on my USB.
    Too many ._DSStore and trash files on USB

    formatted USB on Windows and used DS_Store delete on Mac to delete the DS store files.

    Seems to be OK for now,
