The LDB format was used by Microsoft Access prior version 2007 for database lock files. The latest versions of Microsoft Access are using the .laccdb files for databases instead.

Whenever a .mdb file is opened, a .ldb file with the same file is created. Those .ldb files plays an important role in the multiuser scheme of the Microsoft Jet database engine. A .ldb file is used to determine which records are locked in a shared database and by whom.
