I like your method, Holly, in that you have two previews, a folder and kit preview.
The problem I ran in to when my hard drive crashed was with those designers who only had one
preview, named it "folder.jpg." When restoring my files (which was an extreme makeover headache, I assure you, but that's a story for another day), my computer would look at all those files named only "folder.jpg" and decide that I already had a file with that name, this was obviously a duplicate, and not re-import it. I had to go through my files, trying to find which one went with which kit, rename it and then re-import it. Some (which I blame on Mozy, again another long story) I never got back, so I have a few kits without any
Thankfully, I'm seeing this less often, as most designers do what you do and include a folder and a preview.
And, for that, I thank you!
