    I've read the previous post on this issue, and the replies were informative
    but I still don't know how to get rid of an access.lockfile.9 file that
    appeared in my folder last week. I created the database that it refers to a
    few weeks ago, and have not had problems until now.

    The database is on a shared drive, accessable by about 20 people in the
    office. I created and modify the database on my local (C:) drive, make
    backups every evening on my C: drive, then transfer the modified version to
    the shared drive for use by the office. When I tried to do that this morning,
    the system would not let me delete the old .mdb file to replace with the
    modified version. That's when I noticed the .ldb file labeled
    access.lockfile.9

    How do I get rid of this file? I can't delete, rename or move it. No one
    else has the database open.

    Sometimes it's necessary to reboot the server to get it to release its
    handle on the file.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
