Problem when deleting Thumbs.db

Post by tony_onsitu » Thu Aug 25, 2011 10:04 am


XnView generate a lot à thumbs.db files.
On our network, there is a problem with permissions with these files. Noboy can't delete the thumbs.db even if you're the "big adminstrator"... it's not very useful
Have you got an idea to avoid this ?
Thanks in advance

Thumbs.db files are created by Windows explorer, not by XnView. XnView stores its thumbnails in the XnView.db file.
XnView Tweak UI - Tool to customize your XnView beyond the regular XnView options.
UI-less Settings - Documentation of all the hidden settings in XnView.
XFAM - Tool to create and customize XnView file associations.
