Create thumbs.db for users in network share

Hello all,

I am working with a company that view a ton of photos all day long. Every time they get a new crop of pics (jpeg) they have to scroll slowly through the pictures to populate the thumbs.db file. After that the picture previews come up relatively quickly. I was hoping i could maybe find some program or script that would take care of it for me automatically.

We are using a 2008 file server and a 2012R2 RDS server.

Thanks,

Probably the simplest way is to use a 3rd part tool that acts as a image viewer can be installed over computers.
Creating a thumbs database is a native function to windows and since windows stores this database the bigger it gets the slower the images populate and a disc clean-up is required to reduce this thumbs database
thumbnailsThere is numerous settings that can be enabled to simplify this process, rightclick an empty space where these photos are stored and then go to sort by!!  or group by!!> click on More at the bottom>add in more details so they can be sorted into groups based on these.
