Portable Thumbs Remover 1.6.1.280

The application allows you to scan your computer and it displays all the DB files with their path location, so you can delete them
Made as the portable twin of Thumbs Remover, this lightweight software application scans the computer to automatically identify Thumbs files (DB format) and delete them, since they are unnecessary items that just clutter the hard disk.

It does not come equipped with complex features or configuration parameters, so it ca be handled by anyone with ease.

Portability advantages

Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the program files in any part of the hard disk and just launch the executable. It is also possible to save Thumbs Remover to a pen drive or other mass storage device, in order to run it on any PC directly.

An important aspect worth taking into consideration is that the Windows registry and Start menu do not get updated with new entries, and no extra files are created on the disk, thus leaving it clean after removal.

Intuitive interface and settings

The GUI is clean and intuitive. You can get started by selecting the folder or drive to scan, and click a button to start it. Results show the full path and size for each detected DB file. All you have to do is select files and click a button to delete them.

As far as program configuration is concerned, you can switch to another UI language and disable the tool from saving the starting scan path, position of the window and window size when closing, as well as extend the Windows themed frame borders.

Evaluation and conclusion

The tool runs on low CPU and RAM, so it does not affect the overall performance of the PC. We have not come across any issues in our tests, since Thumbs Remover did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. All in all, the app gets the job done and can be easily used by anyone.
