Any difference 2008 / 2008R2 deal with thumbs.db in shared folder


  • Hi all,

    We got 3 windows server provide files service, two 2008 and one 2008 R2, in workgroup. Most user using Windows 10/7.

    Just handling a inquiry from users that they cannot move / delete folders immediately on 2008 R2 with reason "thumbs.db being accessed by Windows Explorer". I understand thumbs.db should be created by client side, and its Windows Explorer lock the thumbs.db.

    I check out for a while, it can be avoid by "Always show icons, never thumbnails." to disable thumbnails. However, it is not a option to fit us, as thumbnails quite useful in routine tasks, which handling a lot graphic files.

    After further check out, users only report this thumbs.db issue when using shared folder on 2008 R2, but not 2008s. I look into 2008 servers, thumbs.db files also created by user.

    I wonder if there are difference between 2008 and 2008R2 shared folder when handling thumbs.db? or any configuration can be deal with this issue?
