Cleaning Up Windows Thumbs.db

I just don’t understand why Windows litters thumbs.db files all over the disk. Yeah it might be quicker to get thumb nail images from that cache for a directory with a huge number of images, but in general the files are just an annoyance and really don’t save any appreciable amount of time on a modern computer with reasonable numbers of image files in a single directory.

I made my life a little easier clear thumbs.db by writing a batch file that you can downloads (in a 7z archive) via cleanup_thumbs.7z
