We keep running into a problem with a particular Microsoft Access database. It would give us the following error:

"Unrecognized database format"

We would recover the tables, start a new database. After any user opens and closes the database for the first time, the second user will run into that same error.

The file is encrypted using PGP NetShare. I would usually blame the encryption, but we have more than 3 databases that are encrypted with PGP NetShare and only one of them would give us this problem. Any idea why?
