If you haven't already, it would be worth rebooting the machine with the 'in use' error a couple of times to try and stop whatever is trying to use it.

Re: Cannot open local database HELP!

Gary - Thank you

 

your suggestion that you posed on 9/23/2016  to:

 

Please Could you try closing Act, then download and run the version of ActDiag I have attached to this post, then click on Tools > Attach Act! Database > Missing Log File. Browse to the .ADF file of the database you're trying to access, and click OK.

 

worked perfectly and I am able to recover a lot of data - thank you!!!!!!!

fixed all my problems and I was able to recover a lot of data that I had moved from a crashed PC.

 

Thank you again.
