ZIPCleaner helps to get rid of those .DS_Store and other Mac-specific hidden files from Archives

When you create an Archive of a folder under Mac OS X using the built in "right-click" (cmd-click) context menu functionality "Compress ... ", you end up having the .DS_Store folders in the resulting ZIP-file. That's no problem for you, but if you send that to a Windows user, they end up having a bunch of (at least for them) "strange" folders and files when they unpack the Archive.


Using ZIPCleaner, you can remove those .DS_Store, Icon^M and __MACOS files from the Archive by just dropping it in the application's window or dock icon.
