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 !!

How would I go about this? I dislike having thumbnail previews of certain file types like video's. But I want my Jpgs, gifs, png's and such, basicly pictures to have Thumbnail previews still. Thats all. The only option Seven gives me is all or none.

Most of the pictures in my "My Pictures" folder display their thumbnails. But anytime I save a picture from online or copy some from my camera, they don't show up. They just show the little standard JPEG mountain scene. Other times if I open a folder with a lot of images, I don't even get the...
