Hi experts

we have photos sorted on the network these are then numbered by a end user to insert into a word document to do this the photos are moved to a folder on the users pc, they use the tumbnail veiw to help do this. problem is when they do the next job the thumbs.db is still making the thumb nails show the old pics and not the new thumbnail pic

any ideas

thanks

Delete the file. Close Explorer, and view the files again.

Also- use tweakui to change the size of the thumbnail.

create a batch file that deletes *.db files from the required folders.

Open a folder up, go to tools >> folder options >> View tab

 Now scroll down to "Do not cache thumbnails" (check box) then click apply to all folders.
