    Right click 1 or right clik many & select details tab (option is at bottom) is that what you want ?not sure if it removes size & type so try one just in case it does

    these embedded thumbnail jpgs you mention is this for music files ? mp3tag is what i use

    i also use freestone image viewer there are .exe or portable.It can do the metadata thingy under tools not sure about batch remove

    sourceforge
    filehippo

    i get a few sub emails from all over the place there was mention of photo's holding personal info,although this isn't the one it's a start,has a freebie metadata editor as well

    The thumbnails are in some jpeg pictures...They can store a thumbnail of the original image...& I beleive...the original metadata...

    An easy way I found was by changing the file type several times...fubars all the metadata...
