I have a user who runs an access db that at, what seems to be random intervals, locks up and become inaccessible. the file is stored on a files server. The user has tried

1. Running the file directly from the server
2. copying and running on it his local machine

but once the file is locked, we can't move it, rename it, nor delete it. I tried right clicking on it and the security and sharing tab is gone.

any ideas on why this could happen and how can I restore the permission on this file.
