+pushkar1989, it's a late reply, but you can use:

Backup Thumbnails.bat:
Code:
@echo off

:: Choose backup location for "Explorer - Copy":
set location="[I][U]C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\[/U][/I]"

:: Go there
cd /d "%location%"

:: Remove previous "Explorer - Copy" backup (2>nul: ignore directory doesn't exist)
rd "Explorer - Copy" /s/q 2>nul

:: Create new one (echo d: copy a directory)
echo d | xcopy "%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer" "Explorer - Copy" /y/s/q
Restore Thumbnails.bat:
Code:
@echo off

:: Choose backup location for "Explorer - Copy":
set location="[I][U]C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\[/U][/I]"

:: Go there
cd /d "%location%"

:: Kill explorer.exe
taskkill /im explorer.exe /f

:: Copy thumbnails from "Explorer - Copy"
xcopy "Explorer - Copy\thumbcache_*.db" "%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\" /q/y

:: Restart explorer.exe with "start" to auto-close CMD window
start explorer.exe

Btw, to have the scripts run silent (no CMD window popping up), use the following VBScript and save it with the .vbs extension:

Code:
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell" )
WshShell.Run chr(34) & "[U][I]C:\Path\to\the.bat[/I][/U]" & Chr(34), 0
Set WshShell = Nothing

I found this on Google search:



I just applied it & will wait to see if it works. :)

Edit- Thumbnail cache disappeard from Disk Cleanup. :)
The size of the cache is 62.5 MBs right now.
I am going to reboot & check it again.
I'll be back.

I'm back.
After restarting, the cache was the same size as before.

It seems to work. :)

Edit- I just noticed similar options are already posted.
I will add a screenshot of permissions to see if they are as others' settings.
