File Extension DB

.DB File

File extension: DB
File type: Thumbnail Database


Notes about the DB file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The DB file type is primarily associated with 'Windows' by Microsoft Corporation. File is THUMBS.DB. If a folder is set to display thumbnails for graphic files this is the file where they are stored. If you delete the file Windows will rebuild it the next time you visit that folder. The file is normally marked as hidden and a system file so you may have to change settings to see it. If preview thumbnails get out of sync with the actual files, just delete this file and let it be rebuilt.
