Extract thumbnail from catalog.

Post by FKCapitalism2 »

I have situation when image was deleted from hard disk, however its still inside Thumbs database of XnView MP and shows as on of four thumbnails on folder that view trough XnView MP.

How can i locate that thumbnail inside the Thumb.db file and extract it using DB Browser for SQLite?

Path is "C:\Users\Dell\Downloads\RAW Preview\" name of the image file i don't know, how do i look for it inside Thumbnails DB?

My hard disk is completely destroyed and unrecoverable, and all I have left are just the db files of xnviewmp (xnview.db, thumb.db).

I would like to extract at least some of the image files by any means possible, is there any good way?

to show thumbnails stored in catalog you can use 'All' in catalog filter panel. Extract them is not easy
