Subject Content of Thumbs.db files (was RE: [VOTE] Release build 6.0.16)
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2008 17:23:41 GMT
I think that it is safe to ship the thumbs.db inside the archives.
Thumbs.db is the image thumbnail database generated by Windows Explorer when you display images
in Explorer.
So it will only deliver information about the images in the directory where it sits.
You can use to have a look inside the file to verify it ...

Best regards,

I would agree with keeping the files we used for testing. No need for 
repackaging, because the issue is so small and there's always a little 
risk in repackaging. So I would suggest to simply proceed with the files 
we tested (and maybe have a short look at the contents of the Thumbs.db, 
so we know we don't deliver something compromising ... :) )
