We have a procedure where by users check files/folder count in a folder they receive to a document that is automatically generated and tells them the amount of documents etc that should be in the folder.
In windows this works as the properties dialog does not count the thumbs.db file toward the file count etc.
On OSX under Get Info the file count includes all hidden files and folders.
Is there a way to stop this as we only want to know how many "real" documents and folders are in that folder. Looking for a setting to turn off or maybe even an app that specialises in this...
UPDATE: I have added a picture of the "Get Info" result from Finder and the "Properties" result from muCommander (another file manager for OSX) muCommander always shows hidden files and there are no .DS_Store files so it counts correct "169" but Finder shows incorrect "183".
