I recently located Thumbcache images in a folder called Virtualized in the Temp Internet Files on a windows 7 machine. The pathway was /[root]/Users/[user name]/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Temporary Internet Files/Virtualized/C/Users/[user name]/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Explorer/thumbcache_256.db.
Why is there a thumbcache.db in this "virtualized" folder?
Are these thumbnails from web pages viewed or are they thumbs from images saved on the computer?
What is the purpose of the virtualized folder and why is it in the Tempory Internet Files? Thanks for any input.
