Access 2013 - Can't Backup BackEnd Data File

Greetings!
I have a locked data set, that shows my computer as the one that is causing the block.
I have closed down all programs and restarted the computer and still have the same block.

I assume there is a ghost that is open someplace.
How do I close down the file so I can properly backup my data?


Thanks All!

what is the error you are getting? you can use the unlocker tool to find which process is using the file.

Thanks Gaurav!
Do you happen to know if the windows 8 version will work with windows 10?

Did you try to delete the lock file - .ldb or .laccdb?

Hi DGWhittaker.

Perhaps the problem is that you have the backend locked by the front end. Try to do the backup closing the frontend first.

If you can do it, then the problem is that you open the backend file in exclusive mode. change it to shared.

Best regards.
