is it possible to disable the autogeneration of the folder.jpg in the picture directories?
If you browse your pictures in Mediaportal it automatically gerates this folder.jpg in each folder.
I don't want that. Can it be disabled somehow? I know it will be used for replacing the icons but this I do not need.

    Hi Robby69

    Best to check the wiki first for questions like this. You should be able to disable thumbnail creation:

    Thumbnails - MediaPortal Wiki

    Just untick the media that you don't want thumbnails for.

    Hi mm1352000

    thanks for the info.
    I have already done this but unchecking all options does not help.

    Hrm, quite some time ago. Is there a way to disable thumbnail creation currently?

    I found an issue. The GUI not shows the existing thumbnails if the automatic generation is disabled. It is fixed in my side. Do you want to a new build?
