    thumbs.db

    Hi,

    Please help!! A thumbs.db file appeared in my photos folder. Could this have appeared by deleting the photos? Or could it have appeared by moving/copying the photos?

    Also, is it possible to view photos from the thumbs.db file?

    Please help!

    Thanks!

    Thumbs.db files are created by Windows XP when you are viewing a folder with image contents. It contains thumbnails of the files in the folder. If you don't want those files to be created, open an explorer window, go to "Folder Options..." in the Tools menu, View tab, and check "Do not cache thumbnails".

    Thanks! Buy can you create them on purpose? I still don't know if they can be created simply by deleting a folder of photos??

    Thank you!
