    thumbs.db - How to disable damn thing


    A cosmetic problem, more like an irritation.

    I have several websites and use Microsoft Expression 4 on Win 8.1 and filezilla to upload on ftp.

    I have noticed that each folder in the various sites on the pc spawn a thumbs.db data file even though I do not use thumbs. I delete it and next time I am in there its back.

    How do I actually stop it from appearing at all.
