HFE converter generating ._xxx files of 26K length

Post by blakespot » Fri Sep 19, 2014 3:51 am

I batch covert Atari ST disks in the Win-based HxC converter to HFE and I get lots of files named ._whatever.hfe that are 26K long and not functional. What is that about?

Thanks.

Are you using a Mac or are you using some special tools on your disks ?
not sure but it seems that the hxc software is trying to convert some hidden files.
Can you share one of these HFE files ?
