C:\Documents and Settings\user name\.thumbnails\normal
With Windows XP Home edition:
I have notice that under C:\Documents and Settings\user
name/.thumbnails\normal that there are a lot of recent thumbnail photos.
What's this all about????
Any knowledge on this?
Thanks in advance,
hb

A leading dot makes file names hidden in Unix systems like Linux and MacOSX.
The / (forward slash) also points in that direction.

Maybe you run a dual boot and have accessed the sda1 drive from the
other OS?
Or maybe you use a graphics viewer like XnView or GQview that has it's
origins in Linux.

I'm sure the forward slash was a typo - I've got this folder but it was
under \.thumbnails

No idea what the contents are about though, OP, sorry! Perhaps their nature
and date will give you clues.
