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.

Updated Version is much better

I’m updating my review based on support received and an updated app that performs much better and is much more stable. The app is defintiely useful and convenient now and the developer was very supportive of trying to fix the reported issues.

Very useful for studios with Kurzweils

I have a few audio devices, including a couple Kurzweil synths that require SM or XD cards or USB thumb drives to move files to & from my Mac. Mac OS adds various files related to spotlight indexing (?) etc, that occasionally cause problems for the devices. Blue Harvest is a clever utility to easily remove those added files upon ejecting. Works great. The developer is fantastic.

Just what I needed

I needed some serious cleanup done on our media server, and it did the job quickly!
