Check out this link:

The mentioned solution is to check out what process is locking this EDB-file with "OpenedFilesView" ( http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/opened_files_view.html )


OpenedFilesView displays the list of all opened files on your system. For each opened file, additional information is displayed: handle value, read/write/delete access, file position, the process that opened the file, and more...
Optionally, you can also close one or more opened files, or close the process that opened these files.



HTH!
