BlueHarvest keeps your disks free of metadata while you work without you needing to lift a finger.
New in version 8: BlueHarvest now includes "Storage Cleaner" which allows you to free up space used by app caches and log files.
Deletion of macOS metadata: .DS_Store, ._ files, .AppleDouble, .Trashes, .Spotlight, .fseventsd, .TemporaryItems and more.
Deletion of Windows metadata: Desktop.ini, .Thumbs.db, $RECYCLE.BIN and System Volume Information.
Custom blacklists (with wildcards) for deletion of any items you wish.
Cleaning of metadata from zip archives.
"Get Info" feature for showing metadata which BlueHarvest can delete.
Scheduled cleaning of disks (useful for regularly cleaning disks shared with non-BlueHarvest users).
Set-and-forget operation with per disk configurations.
Users can now "Force Eject" a disk if it is busy when using "Clean and Eject".
Fixes a bug where disks were only being unmounted when using "Clean and Eject". Now they are being unmounted -and- ejected.

Just what I needed
I needed some serious cleanup done on our media server, and it did the job quickly!
Very Handy to Transfer Files to Samsung TVs Using USB SSDs
These days, you can view your home videos and photos on Smart TVs using USB drives. The only thing is the Smart TV only supports non-Mac file format, such as ExFAT. When you transfer your video and photo files from your Mac to the ExFAT drive, the MacOS will write all kinds of resource files to the non-Mac USB drive as well. These resource files are not readible by the Smart TV. The files just mess up your Smart TV directory and interfere with displaying the video and photo contents. I have two 500GB SSD drives with thousands of files, all associated with their own Mac resource files. BlueHarvest cleaned the two disks up in seconds, very straight forward. The documentation is there if you need it but the process is quite straight forward. Well worth the price.
Perfect! Just what I was looking for!
I am new to Mac. I also have an embroidery machine that reads USB, but when files were loaded from my Mac, the USB was unreadable by my embroidery machine. After researching, I learned that Mac places hidden files on the USB, making it unreadable by my machine (I problem I didn’t have from my PC.) I downloaded the trial version of this program from the website. This app easily (automatically after setting up, which is also easy) removed all the junk files from my USB and it is now able to be read by my embroidery machine! I ended up purchasing this app from the app store (using my gift cards) and it works flawlessly! After setting it up, it cleans my USB automatically when I eject it. It’s great! Thanks!!
