When you unzip the files, you see them.

However, you just don’t want to leave those junk.

You will use find command to delete them


Delete .DS_Store or ._* files

cd [Path/To/UnarivedFolder]
find . -name ".DS_Store" -delete; find . -name "._*" -delete

cd [Path/To/UnarivedFolder]
find . -name "*.bak" -delete

TIPS: Configure your Mac not to save .DS_Store files

# Start terminal

killall Finder
