    Hi. I know how to disable creation of thumbs.db, and now know how to delete them locally (using Disk Cleanup), but some were created on external drives before I had disabled creation of them, and it seems Disk Cleanup isn't able to access these drives. Any advice on deleting all thumbs.db files on external drives without manually looking through? Thanks in advance.

    My favorite program for finding multiple files is Everything Search Engine

    I like it so much I no longer use Windows file search :)
