    Hi coz, you're welcome. If you want you can actually delete the entry you create to disable the auto maintenance, there is no risk.

    Is there any way to increase the size limitation of thumbcache_96.db and thumbcache_1280.db?

    Has exactly the same problem.
    As a photographer, I have more than 10.000 images and every time Windows deletes my thumbnails, I'll have to spend several days rebuilding them. That is not acceptable.

    I have now applied the suggested solution and it seems to have corrected the problem. Thank you very much ylm!

    This is the only solution that worked for me too.

    Yeah this is a joke that Microsoft (a) created the bug and then (b) fails to fix this. This is why constant cumulative and feature updates are a pain. Things break and often go unfixed for long periods (if ever). Imagine how many people, who are not tech savvy or do not find their way to forums like this, are scratching their head over this. Many will just accept and live with the bug when they shouldn’t have to! Thank goodness for ylm offering the workaround.

    I had a much larger issue with this problem as for everyone else in this thread, Win would randomly refresh the thumbnails/icon cache but it wouldn't stop refreshing in each folder at the time of the refresh, so the green refresh progress bar at the top just kept on rolling. If I left it, then bizarre things started to happen with win explorer, like all the view settings being greyed out within the folder, not being able to select any items and not being able to close the folder. Basically I couldn't do anything without restarting win explorer or the PC.

    I spent some time clearing the thumbnails and icon cache, plus the Autoruns DWORD value to 0 fix has completely cured it for me too. I'm worried that by changing this setting something else might get borked when/if the issue is fixed in an update. Made a note of reg path just in case.

    I'm not sure if my caches had been corrupted as well as the bug.

    None of this happened in 1703.
