Exclude ._ (dot underscore) files


So I seem to be not smart enough to figure this out on my own: I’m trying to exclude these files that MacOS creates (because Duplicaty can’t process the metadata for them) but I can’t figure out how:

Exclude files whose name contain: ._

seems to exclude files that have _ or . anywhere in the filename. I tried various other options but none of them seem to work.

What am I doing wrong? (Pretty sure the solution would be regex but I have no idea were to start).

Whoops, nevermind, enableing „Exclude Hidden Files“ takes care of that ^___^

Now how do I tag this as solved?

Glad you figured it out!

If you click the elipses (three dots) menu below a post it should expand to show additional buttons including a “Solution” icon which I went ahead and clicked for you (in case you don’t make it back here). :slight_smile:
