    No Image Thumbnails in Explorer!


    Hey guys,

    Did a quick search and only found posts about windows re-doing thumbnails, not when they are gone altogether!

    Any ideas? As far as I can remember this happened totally randomly!

    UPDATE: I've just realised that this is ALL files, not just images and it doesnt matter if they are on the desktop / pendrive / google drive etc..
