Hi,

Where is the location of this file? Are you running Exchange? Tmp.edb is a file used in Exchange for temp storage of processing transactions.

mass2612,

There is a tmp.edb file in c:\winnt\system32\dhcp folder. But it is not important for the dhcp backup.

The DHCP database backs itself up automatically every 60 minutes to the %SystemRoot%\System32\Dhcp\Backup\Jet directory. So why do you have to worry about dhcp backup?

By the way if you really need to make a manual backup have a look of the following link.

^^^ Correct - I'm guessing your asking this because its errored or been listed as an Exception on your nightly backup job :)
As ormerodrutter correctly stated for backup purposes you can deselect all the files and folders below system32\dhcp with the exception of the system32\backup folder, then it wont error and you can recover it should the need arise :)
