ehthumbs.dbwhich holds previews of video files. Each thumbnail created in a directory is represented in this database file as a small JPEG file, regardless of the file's original format. The images are resized to a maximum of 96×96 pixels, or a proportional miniature of their original shape for non-square images, with 96 pixels on the longer side. Each folder with initiated thumbnail views (that is where they have displayed a Thumbnails or Filmstrip view in Windows Explorer) will have a Thumbs.db file. Folders with pictures also display previews on their icon when displayed in Thumbnail mode – the first four images in the folder at 40×40 pixels (or proportionally shaped), with a 1-pixel divider overlaid on a standard large folder icon. The Thumbs.db file is stored in OLE Compound Document format, the same format that many Microsoft Office products use.
%homedrive%Users%username%AppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsExploreras a number of files with the label thumbcache_xxx.db (numbered by size); as well as an index used to find thumbnails in each sized database. However, when browsing network shares with write permission, Windows Vista SP1 stores a Thumbs.db file in the remote directory instead of using the (local) central thumbcache.
