...other than obvious backups and any windows group policy strategy you may or may not have.. considered windows file system attributes? the DOS command attrib +h +s c:\bin\test.mdb for instance will make the file hidden and system. This will still give the user an idea of the file location on the FILE menu if used in and 'uncontrolled' Access runtime menubar situation though.

It largely depends on how unintentionally destructive or downright malicious your userbase wants to be and your perception of workable preventative measures?
