I use source control while developing software. Apple’s OSX creates .DS_Stores files in any folder that you browse with Finder. These are normally hidden but they obviously aren’t ignored by version control which is designed track everything including hidden files.

4. Migrate all the existing DS_store files using the command:
Hope this is helpful.
