    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.
