Does any one know of a  way to automatically unlock all .mdb and .ldb files? I continue to have locking problems with the databases which require me to manually unlock files until the DB lets us in.  It would be nice if we could do this automatically. Let me know your thoughts.  Thanks!

del c:\mydatadir\*.ldb /Q /F

but id' try to find out why your ldb's are hanging around in the first place...it's usually caused by someone exiting improperly
