    Just delete the file. It a file used by Windows and should have never been uploaded.

    Hi.
    Ditto to what s_ha_dum said. thumbs.db stores thumb cache information for files contained in a given folder. Completely useless on your server.
    Cheers!

    Thanks for the reply guys!

    However, i think i deleted all thumb.db files, but i'm still getting the error message?

    What the hell? I used windows search, and deleted all thumbs.db files and turned off the generation of thumbs files?

    Is there any specific location where i should look?
    I'm testing the theme on localhost.

    I did all that.

    And when i run a theme check, only in my theme i get this error message.

    I checked for thumbs.db and Thumbs.db, and search results return nothing

    What "theme check" are you talking about? Are you trying to submit to the theme repository or is this some other theme scanner?

    Yes, i'm trying to submit to theme repository :)...

    Anyway, i solved the problem, and i don't know what was the cause.
    I just copied my files into a new folder.

    I'm guessing i had a thumbs file hidden somewhere, but my settings are set to show hidden files o.O

    Anyway, it works now. Thank you for your help guys!
