For months this happens to me. :)
Why I see my old photos like that? :confused:
When I open the folder, for a second I see all the pictures well, but then all begin to close. :cln: prup, prup, prup, prup
How can I fix this?:confused:

:wve:

Try doing a disk cleanup, as it will remove the old thumbnails and rebuild them :).

Also, make sure you have this unticked :

:yik: I can't!.

They are all family photos !!!!! :confused::)
This is a removable disk in my HP PC. Also happens to my couple :cln:;):)on her laptop ....
I think it has something to do with the old photo camera. All photos taken with that camera doing so. :confused:
The thumbnails can be viewed with the menu of windows vista in different formats and sizes.

try deleting thumbnail.bin from the folder, close it - then re-open
not sure if vista uses the "thumbs.db" file as well (like XP) . but you can find out by displaying hidden and system files. If you see that file in your album folder, delete it as well.

look also for option "do not cache thumbnails" - select it as well.

Don't work :(

I have been looking good and not dependent on the camera. Some photos appear randomly opened and other closed. :confused:

I can not see them either with windows viewer or others. :o

Anyone??? :confused:


I don't know what I have one archive AlbumInfo.lst and one Thumbnail.bin. I deleted but there is no difference. Sometimes it will appear.

^ Do the photos look fine when you open them in any other programs?

Sounds like something in the photos (the way that the camera stores data, possibly the EXIF) is confusing Windows and caused it to view the images in correctly. If they don't open in any other programs either, then it may be something to do with the camera itself or the card that you have used.

I have Vista too :D

So do thousands of other people... It isn't exactly a helpful point to make.

If I open them with photoshop i.e., they are fine
Thanks Jamie :o

EDIT: I guess my title is wrong. Not on the thumbnails, but the view as thumbnails and common viewers

1. Do you have Admin rights generally and write rights for this particular folder?

2. Have you tried to copy the folder to another drive and see what happens with thumbnails there?

3. Have you recently installed any codecs/viewer program? MIME associations can be messed.

4. You can try this:


open My Computer
right click on a blank area of the screen and select Properties
select advanced system settings
select Performance
select Adjust for best performance, click Apply
when its changed select Let windows choose wht's best for my computer
then Apply

1.- The only difference I find between folders without problems and they have is this unknown account inherited from the old computer.
I managed to erase the inherited rights of that account in a folder, but the result remains the same as you can see.

2.- Yes. Nothing.

3.- Not recently installed, but the MIME associations of old computer may be different from the new computer, I guess.
But I don't understand how removing the inherited rights (Point 1) is not resolved.

4.- Try. Done. I have this default configuration always.
This would occur if all folders have the same problem, but this only affects the old folders.





I remind you that the laptop also has the same problem.
I think it is related to point 1 and point 3.
Thanks a lot :o

EDIT: I can see almost all the photos in presentation mode but not in preview or edit mode.

Tampi. :)

Open one of your photos in photoshop. Then resave ( Save as ) it to a totally different folder.
Then check the thumbnail for that photo in the new folder.

If all is fine you could then do the same with the rest of your photos.
( But I am guessing you probably have hundreds of photos ?? :( )
Anyway, you could use this as a Last Resort if nothing else works.

Yes, not hundreds, almost 2000 with that problem. :o (well, hundreds :D, but a lot!!!!)

That works. I assumed that the only solution would be something thus.:(


Last Resort, Last Resort....... hopefully was Tulip Resort :cln::D:p

OK, if someone does not think a great solution.... Thank you all. :tmb::wve:

There can be another solution:

1. Delete all Rights except Creator-Owner (make sure they are inherited from the upper folder by the subfolders and files).

2. Make yourself the owner of the folders and files and set Full permissions to your account.

3. Move via Windows/Total Commander those files to a flash drive (make sure you have "Move the NTFS rights" unticked).

4. Delete all folders remaining from those pictures from HDD, then move files from flash drive back to HDD via W/T C with the same option unticked.

What's that!!!!!! :yik::yik: "via W/T C " :confused::o


OMG... I will try and I'll edit this post with the result
Thanks Esconder :)

Via Windows Commander or Total Commander (TC is just the new name of WC - newer versions are released as TC) :)

The disk cleanup will only remove the thumbnails. Your computer will re-generate the thumbnails the next time you go into the folder.

^^ :confused::pi::o


I already took a few hours ....:pi:

:cln::D

I tried with all my resources to do all sorts of variations with the permissions, rights, properties, exceptions, accounts .... a lot of windows with endless varieties of all kinds. :rolleyes::pi: The result has been changed in all cases but always negative. :ohn::cln::o
Recopies and I copied the folder from one location to another, I have been inherited rights and new ones that I don't know where they have left ... :eek::pi:

After trying all these sorts of things with all sorts of programs, I managed to find a solution. :o:whi:

First, I thought that with Easy Thumbnails can create thumbnails without changing the original photos in a fast way, because the program allows you to select entire folders and automatically resizes them. (No like photoshop)
The result was this!!!!! :eek:

http://i39.************/ie0yut.jpg

The preview image is not a far stretch, was now crushed!!!!

http://i41.************/2iszak7.jpg :confused:

Downloading all sorts of programs and doing all sorts of attempts have succeeded, with XnView, using option "conversion" to export entire folders and automatically restore all files. :cln::jmp::D:o

Providing some additional information to resolve this issue, these photos were taken with a camera Creative. I thought it was not installed the original drivers may cause this defect. It is also possible that the old PC order have made some kind of indexing or file compression to increase capacity. This may have caused these variations. Maybe some old computer MIME associations may also have had influenced.
In any case, it seems that the option may be faster to use XnView. I hope not to lose quality in the photos. The tests I've done is positive.:yah:

Thank you all for your interest. :):tmb:

XnView, or IrfanView - can do the same for you :)
