Environment WIndows 2008 R2 Server
Il a large folder tree on the 2008 Server, I have a thumbs.db file in almost every folder and sub-folder. (A search at the root of the folder finds about 700 thumbs.db). I do not know where these thumbs.db files come from (maybe a migration from a Windows 2003 server) but there are very annoying because, for example, after copying a small folder, the copied folder cannot be renamed of erased since it tells me the "thumbs.db is used by explorer" and I have to wait about one minute to be able to detele/rename. Then I can delete or rename the folder. In this large folder I do not have images files but only XLS, DOC and PDF files.
It seems to me that if I erase the thumbs.db file from the folder, and I copy the folder (without the thumbs.db files) to another folder the thumb.db file returns !!! THis is true only if I make the copy from my Windows 7 client PC. If I make the copy in the server itself the thumbs.db do not come back in the copied folder
Any one has an idea ? What is this problem coming from ?
Any idea how to solve this problem?
