Error message “Windows cannot find this file... ” while opening .accdb file

This usually occurs when your Access database file gets corrupted or damaged. Few most common scenarios under which your database file gets corrupted are application malfunction, operating system damage, improper shutdown of database, multiple users modifying the same database component, virus attack, and more. Such situations primarily leave your database in unstable state and make the data stored in the database inaccessible.
