  • reducing disk space used by thumb1.ftp file

    Hi, I have a question.

    I noticed that two files in de ACDSee program folders take up a lot of disk space. Thumb1.ftp and Thumb2.ftp.
    They are each several GB's and since I'm using an older computer it means my hard disk is now almost full .

    How can I reduce the size of these files? And / or can I delete them?

    If reducing / deleting these files means that ACDSee needs more time displaying the thumbnails when I open a folder, that would be okay for me.
    However I don't want to lose any database information concerning categories and ratings.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!!

    You can make a backup of the catalog in ACDSee (without the Thumbnails) and then restore the catalog. All informations will remain and the size on the disk is now much smaller.
