Windows 10: Thumbnails Issue Solved

    Thumbnails Issue


    I have a portable hard drive, which has numerous media files in numerous folders, and since a Windows 10 fall update about a week ago, it's taken to having to re-load all the thumbnails every time I pug-in and access the drive. It's extremely laborious waiting for it. Previously it only did that if I checked the thumbnails box when doing disk clean-up, which accordingly I only did occasionally.

    Not sure if the update has changed a setting somewhere, or if it's a bug, or perhaps a corrupted cache file.

    Has anyone else come across this? ... and any advice on what steps I might take to resolve the issue would be much appreciated.
