    Hello all.. Curiosity here.. When I use 'System Tools/Disk Cleanup' it will always says I have between 50 and 200 mgs of thumbnails that can be removed.. I know what their purpose is and that they will be re-created when used, but my question is... Where are they located?.. Is there a way I can view the folder or the thumbnails before removing them? Thanks :)

    Not sure what your question is.
    If you can see the pictures or the thumbs ... I wouldn't worry about the thumbnails Vista stores.

    I thought I explained it in my first post.. I'll try again.. In Vista when you go to Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup and tell it yes that you want to clean your C drive it will say that you have so many mgs of thumbnails that can be deleted. (try it and see for yourself).. My question is "where are these thumbnails stored or located?"
    I want to see them.. I didn't say I was worried about them, I said I was curious.. I'm trying to learn Vista better.
