Windows files on a Mac?

Will I damage my Windows files if I store them on a Mac?
I have noticed that when I copy Mac files to Windows, some ghost-like files are copied too. For example, apple.pdf as a main file would also have a ghost file apple.pdf that you see, but cannot open. The ghost file icon appears transparent, where the main file is a solid.
Thank you!

Those ghost like files are probably just hidden files that you need not worry about. Your windows machine probably has 'view hidden files' selected in the explorer preferences.
I transfer files from Mac to Linux to Win XP in every possible combination and have never had a problem.
