Microsoft Office Access is a database management system from Microsoft that combines the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with graphical user interface and software development tools. It comes as a part of Microsoft Office suite in the professional and higher editions and the main concept of Microsoft Access is to help end users to access data from any source. Other feature is import and export of data to many formats including Excel, Outlook, Oracle, ODBC, etc. And .mdb is the file extension used to store Microsoft Access files in Access 2003 and the earlier versions of Microsoft Access. These important MDB files created with lots of efforts can sometime go missing from system due to strange reasons.
One of the most common reasons for which you encounter MDB file loss is because of accidental deletion. Assume that you have created an important office database MDB file using Microsoft Access. While deleting unwanted documents from computer you mistakenly selected essential MDB file and deleted it.
