Disable resource fork in macOS for network or external storage

I’m using secondary HDD as ExFAT format & there is lots of duplicate files & I don’t want to the duplicate files are be there. Because Sometimes I’ve to create zip file & send to client as attachment or if I moved to other OS then those files will be looking ugly 😉


I decided to remove the files or disable to make this file forever on my HDD. For a solution, Googled and found some solutions on StackOverflow site. The best solution you can see on this link.
