    Hi All,

    As a newbie to TDS -3 I want to say what a fantastic program it is, It's a bit "in your face for a newbie" but it works really well. my question is, I ran a full scan and all it found was a heap of things called "Thumbs.db: encryptable"

    I am presuming these are harmless thumbnails. Am i correct.

    Cheers

    That sounds like you are using XP and have got TDS set to scan for Alternative data streams

    The thumbs db are harmless and safe to leave

    It's XP way of tagging the files

    If you open TDS and click on scan control and then ads stream options, tick ignore non executable streams and tick ignore ADS under and set to 88 bytes you won't normally see harmless system ADS streams
