After Creators update 2 thumbnail cache keeps deleting automatically

I have installed Creator update 2, after updating it thumbnail cache deleting itself and having rebuild after sleep mode, or after few hours maybe 4 to 5 hours of PC use.

Anyone help me out?


Possible Solution:

Firstly, try to reset thumbnail cache folder. If the deleting thumbnail cache files method doesn’t work for you then try following:

Windows 8 or later versions come with a new Automatic maintenance service which deletes unnecessary files regularly. This service might also delete thumbnail cache files.

  1. Press Win+R Key to open RUN dialog box.

type taskschd.msc in RUN box > press Enter

Task Scheduler program appears. Go to

Task Scheduler  Library > Microsoft > Windows > TaskScheduler


  1. On the right hand side, you will see below options
  • Idle Maintenance
  • Manual Maintenance
  • Regular Maintenance
  • Maintenance Configurator


  1. You need to disable following options
  • Manual Maintenance
  • Idle Maintenance
  • Regular Maintenance


Right click on the task and select Disable option

  1. If “Maintenance Configurator” re-enable other 3 task, you have to delete all 4 tasks. To delete select all task and hit Delete.


If you are unable to delete above tasks then following below steps

Open RUN dialog box


Type tasks then Enter> Permissions related message shows> click on Continue. It will open C:\Windows\System32\Tasks Folder.

Go to Microsoft\ Windows\ TaskScheduler folder & delete all 4 tasks.

Now, you have disabled Windows Automatic Maintenance Service
