Batch Macro Won't Complete Because of Error Caused by .DS_Store file

Fireball

I have a batch macro that pulls files into a workflow.

 

I am gettin the error  File Not Found X:\_yada\yada\yada\yada\target_folder\.DS_Store".   It's a reference to a hidden macOS file.  I don't have this problem with other folders that feed similar macros. 

 

Any idea on how to resolve this.   I am running Windows 10 Pro via Parallels.

hi @hellyars

 

Can your windows 10 login account see this file from file explorer?

No.  I can work around it by placing all the files into a new folder.  It seems to work so long as I don't add or remove any files.

I'm not familiar with Parallels but I found this thread on the Parallels forum that discusses displaying hidden macOS files.  It may help

 

Good luck
