MS Access .mdb & .ldb database corrupted

P: 1
I am using a A.mdb database. You know when connecting the database Microsoft automatically create a .ldb file. Unfortunately my PC shutdown when connecting the database. As a result after restart the PC I couldnít open the A.mdb file. The message shown A.mdb database is corrupted. A.mdb database was password lock but after corrupted if I give the valid password the database not open and showing the password not valid. Now I couldnít open the database. Now it shown A.mdb file with A.ldb file. Please advise me if PC shutdown with the connected .mdb database then why the database not recover after restart? Also I tried with the option Database Repair and Recovery.

Please advise me and thanks again for your kind co-operation.

Best Regards

rename the *.ldb to *_ldb.OLD

Try to reopen the file. Sometimes this will work... however, if the file was in the middle of a write operation under an encrypted file, you're most likely sunk.
