The thumbs.db file is generated by the Windows operating system. It is a database file containing the small images displayed when you view a folder in "thumbnail" view (as opposed to tile, icon, list, or detail view).

To turn off this feature and save a bit of disk space,
1) Open Control Panel
2) Select Folder Options
3) Click the View tab
4) Check "Do not cache thumbnails"
5) Click the OK button

Note: If u want to use the thumbnail view in Windows, it is adivisable not to turn off this option
