too many thumbs file

a few weeks ago, i restored a system image to this laptop.. unfortunately, i also wiped all data from my d and e drive which resulted in me having to purchase easus data recovery just to recover my files.. it did recover at most 97% of my files but i also got a lot of thumbs file afterwards - almost 1 thumb file in every folder.. i've deep (or full or whatever the program calls it) scanned my laptop with MSE, MBAM and SAS atleast twice already and said no infection found.. i want to delete all those thumbs file but am afraid of the consequences.. is it ok to delete them or not?

thumbs.db is just the file used the store thumbnail images on picture/video files in each folder, it's safe to delete them Windows will just recreate as needed.
