If you have come to this page, you probably already are part of the growing ranks who love Macintosh computers. You probably are also aware that we live in a PC world, and sending zip archives that you create on your Mac can confuse and confound PC users with the extra ".DS_Store" and "__MACOSX" files. Be kind, PC users already have enough confusion to deal with. Send them zip files that they can understand!

When you use the "Create Archive" function on your Mac (to create a zip file) you may believe that you have made a cross-platform file that can be opened by any Mac or PC user… but that is not true. PC users will be able to see files and folders that would be hidden on the Mac: The ".DS_Store" file and "__MACOSX" folder.

Not only can these files and folders confuse your end-user - but they can also confound downstream processing on PC where the end-user has automated extraction for zip files, resulting in a failed extraction of the zip file. The solution is our Zip Mac Files for the PC utility… a simple, lightweight drag and drop application that keeps Mac and PC users talking
