How to recreate thumbnails in (I think) ZbThumbnail.info file

In backing up to DVD all my friends pictures (about 5 gig) I lost all the thumbnail image files ( ZbThumbnail.info...I think ).

Is there a way to recreate the thumbnail cashe...now when you open a folder only the generic image icon appears...can we get back the actual mini-picture that used to be where the icon image is now ?

Thanks...TRinAZ

Never mind...I was trying to view the files from the compressed zip file I created...when opening a file from the zip archive folder the image was fine but no thumbnail in the folder...

When I extracted files to a test folder...then the thumbnails are all there !!
