Just in passing, you might look at this other thread and discussion which went on earlier this year, also dealing specifically with the "loss of and corrupt album art cache"
It actually devolved from from the initial thread subject into a discussion and "how-to" of a terrific replacement for (or at least a "supplement" for, if you're psychologically married to) Windows Media Player and Windows Explorer... namely Jaangle
In fact, the basic music playing, organizing, etc., capabilities of Explorer and WMP are quite limited. If you are a serious music collector and really get enjoyment out of being able to play music on your PC, view album art that you worked very hard to collect, etc., then you should at least look into something else besides Windows Explorer.
And I strongly recommend Jaangle.
(p.s. - imbedding album art inside the tags of music file tags will or should certainly "work", assuming software players that are capable of making use of that imbedded album art in ID3, FLAC, APE, WMV, etc., tag formats. And certainly MP3Tag can manage that imbedded art. But if your music collection is organized along "\artist\album" boundaries, you might seriously consider NOT imbedding the album art in each track from each album (which obviously duplicates the same album art JPG into each of those tracks) but rather use the "external album art" approach. This "external" approach places a single external JPG image file into that album's folder... with the JPG specifically named "cover.jpg". Virtually every software player ever written can understand the notion of external "cover.jpg" in an album folder and use it when playing any music file within that album folder which does not have its own imbedded internal album art in the tag for that music file. Just a suggestion, for saving space caused by duplicated album art... if you already organize by \Artist\Album.)
