    Does Access create Temporary Files, similar to the way Word creates them?
    Where are these files located, and are they deleted when Access is closed, or
    do they remain? I know there are a couple that are created in the Temp
    directory when a database is opened, but they seem to be deleted when the
    program is closed. I'm trying to find out if I can recover data from
    previously opened databases from a user who may be up to no good. I
    appreciate any help!!!

    I do not think that it does. There is an .ldb file that is used to support
    record locking and multi-users, but this is the only extra file that I am
    aware of.

    Yes there are temp files, both in the temp directory and LDBs that track
    record locking. No, you cannot recover any data from them, although you can
    view the contents of the locking file while it is open.

    If you suspect a bad user, enable User-level security (See the Security FAQ)
    and give them no permissions to delete the data.

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!
