    Forgive me if this is a dumb question, but can you not renew database from within the program that initially created it?

    My eyesights poor can't even see snapshot. Perhaps we are going about this wrong. Have you tried giving the command to "REPLACE" file, instead of delete or cancel it ? It would help, what program are we talking about ? http://commandwindows.com

    Program files folder

    The PDF file contains images of the problem but maybe my English is very wrong then I repeat:
    In c:\program files\myfolder folder exists a file database called myDB.edb.
    In another PC I modify a copy of myDB.edb then I move this file to c:\program files\myfolder. Date and size of the c:\program files\myfolder\myDB.edb are changed but when I open the database the internal data are same as old file!
    Note: I've administrator privilege on the destination folder.
