I was just doing some testing I don't know if it will help you or not but if I copied and pasted a jpg or a png in a folder of thumbnail would show but if I dragged and dropped them in a folder it would not show them.
I was going to suggest what you are going to do by creating a new folder.
Let us know how it turns out.

I created a new folder and dropped a single TIFF in it. Thumbnail showed. Then dropped the remaining contents of the questionable folder. Thumbnail still there! I guess it was just a corrupted folder.

All is good. Thanks for the help!
