Thumbs.db files prevent folder deletion from network shares

Issue

Cannot delete certain folders from a network share from Windows 10 Pro desktop. The folders cannot be deleted because they contain hidden Thumbs.db files which are locked by Windows Explorer (these files are used to speed up the display of image thumbnails in  Windows Explorer icon view). Following error message pops up when trying to delete affected folders.
