Thank you for stopping by my blog. This is my first dip into the blogging trench, started out of my curiosity to know what actually is a blog. I try to put here my readings from various sources; books, blogs, sites. I also grab stuff from here & there and try to showcase it in my own style here. If you'd like my scribblings, please subscribe to my full text RSS feeds.

Currently I am experimenting a few new features on my blog, like Peekaboo and Post Summary; the reason for the slight distortion you see. I am hoping to frame up these soon, please bear with me!

Delete Thumbs.db

When I copy image files from my laptop to my pen drive (or vice versa), I get to see a file called Thumbs.db go along with it. What is that file? All the while I considered it to eb a kind of virus...poor me. Only when I was reviewing an article from a portal I run through regularly, I came to know what it is all about.

What is Thumbs.db?

Thumbs.db is a file generated by WindowsXP each time you view folder contents in “Thumbnail” or “Filmstrip” view. This file is a cache file which use by WindowsXP to load up faster the next time you browse that folder.

How to remove it permanently?

You can delete Thumb.db and send it into Recycle Bin but it will keep appearing because by default thumbnails cache is enable in WindowsXP.
To get rid of it, go to My Computer > Tool > Folder Options > View and check “Do not cache thumbnails”.


By enabling this option, it will take a long time to open folder that contains large image files or quantity because the thumbnail images not been cached in Thumbs.db before.
