Repair your picture thumbnails in XBMC after moving them to a central repository

I recently migrated all of my thumbnails in XBMC Eden to a single share on my Synology NAS but had all sorts of grief afterwards with random missing thumbnails.

I finally got around to repairing the missing picture thumbs this evening and found that by simply renaming "\\\Userdata\Database\Textures6.db" to "\\\Userdata\Database\Textures6.old", this file is recreated and the picture thumbs will be regenerated.

P.S I tried regenerating the thumbs using the option menu in XBMC and this did not work.
