Thumbs.db is a file created by [[Windows]] when [[Thumbnails|thumbnail]] view is used. It is a hidden file not viewed by most users and not updated when files are moved from a folder which images have passed through or deleted. This gives a secondary chance that someone will leave behind at least partial evidence of an image in their [[Windows]] folders.

The [[thumbnails]] in Thumbs.db are stored in the [[OLE Compound File]] format. It's the same format that [[Microsoft Office]] uses.

Any thoughts, please put them on www.computer-forensics.co.uk in the forums section.
  
There is a forensic open source application developed at sourceforge called [[vinetto]] at http://sourceforge.net/projects/vinetto that can extract them.  It does require a python environment.  Additionally, there are several other Java solutions based around the Jakarta project that is apart of Apache.  Additional resources about thumbs.db can be found in a white paper at http://www.accessdata.com/media/en_US/print/papers/wp.Thumbs_DB_Files.en_us.pdf.

MiTeC Windows File Analyzer [http://www.mitec.cz/wfa.html] is a tool for forensic analysis of Thumbnail Databases, [[Prefetch]] files, [[LNK | shortcuts]], IExplore Index.DAT files and Recycle Bin contents on a [[Windows]] system. It will print a report of analyzed files.

I am setting up a global directory of computer forensics analysts, and am looking for feedback to the idea. Although the directory is in the UK, I want it to be global.

Any thoughts, please put them on www.computer-forensics.co.uk in the forums section.

Thanks and regards,

Simon
