I'm trying to connect to a personal database in ArcGIS 10.2 that contains work that I've spent the last two weeks working on but I am now receiving an error:
Failed to connect to database. An underlying database error occurred. Unrecognized database format 'F:\streets.mdb'.
Operating system: Windows 7, Database type: personal, Parent Directory: Networked
I'm really hoping there is a solution to this problem. Any suggestions on how to overcome this issue?
EDIT Just noticed there is an associated LDB file that is currently in the folder with the database. If I understand correctly an LDB file is some sort of lock that should disappear once you have closed the file you are working with. Could this be the source of the issue?
