    Where does Windows XP save previews and thumbnails of video and image files? I'm referring to the ones that appear under the details tab when you select them in Windows Explorer. Is the preview saved as a file somewhere on C:\ ?

    The preview is not a file. It's just an image distilled from the file itself and has no real existence.
