I regularly use a network drive (using SMB), along with a bunch of other Mac users. Because those other Macs leave the window view settings in .DS_Store files, I'm constantly having my windows open using other people's last-view settings. Is there any way I can somehow tell the Finder to ignore .DS_Store settings for a given volume?

(I know there's a way I can stop my system from leaving .DS_Store files, but setting that same preference on every Mac that might access the volume is not an option.)

Other than using the terminal command

sudo find /<volume> -name ".DS_Store" -depth -exec rm {} \;

and running it with cron on a regular schedule, you could use FolderWasher, and clean up the volume whenever you wish.
