Thumbnail Database Viewer

Thumbnail Database Viewer

© 2006-2011 Igor Tolmachev, IT Samples
Thumbnail Database Viewer enables you to view thumbnail cache which is used by Windows to speed up the display of thumbnails in folders (thumbs.db, ehthumbs.db, thumbcache_*.db files).
The cache stores all thumbnails created in a folder even if the original image has been deleted.

Thumbnail Database Viewer can be used in the forensic analysis of thumbs.db (ehthumbs.db, thumbcache_*.db) files providing details of when images were saved and their names and storage locations.
