I recently replaced the default macOS (El Capitan) with Ubuntu 16.10 (on a MacBook Pro 11.1, and backed up all my documents to an external drive.
When I migrated all my documents back from the drive, I ended up with a lot of
._ files (including
._.DS_Store, and copies of several documents starting with
._ followed by the original document name.
I would like to get rid of all those files. I tried Bleachbit, but that one apparently only finds the
._DS_Store files, not the other types. I am especially interested in figuring out a way to safely delete all these ._ duplicates of my documents. Also, all these
._ files are scattered around on several different folders and sub-folders, so I would like to be able to make a system-wide search to spot them and delete them, without deleting anything that I actually care about.
Could anyone recommend the best way to do this?
