Synology NAS @eaDir directories popping up everywhere. These are “hidden” folders equivalent to thumbs.db on Windows where the package stores thumbnail files associated with iTunes support. If you’re not using iTunes you don’t need these directories. You can remove them in two steps.

In SSH use the following to locate them:

cd /
find. -type d -name"@eaDir"

and if you’re feeling adventurous you can automatically delete them like so:

find . -type d -name "@eaDir" -print0 | xargs -0 rm -rf
