Size of my access database has been too large 950 mb. Now when i insert more records in it then error message comes ur database size is too large. I have been run compact and repair database utilty but problem is still there. So please suggest me what i should do.
You could distribute your tables over a number of databases, and link them back into the original database. To do this, you can use the database splitter to get the initial setup, and then manually move some of the tables from the backen-database to a different database, and reling these moved tables into the original database.
Another good idea would be to move the backend storage to be SQL Server rather than Access, which would give you a more stable and more scaleable solution.

System restore will not restore any data files, only system files.
Databases normally need periodic sorting as their indexes get corrupted. I don't use any microripoffsoft stuff, only Open Office and iMac. Try reindexing your file with Open Office
First one apply short guide, second make use of http://www.mdb.openfiletool.com/ MDB Open File Tool
· Launch the Microsoft Access application, but do not try to open the corrupted MDB file.· Go to "Tools" in the top menu bar, expand the "Database Utilities" submenu and select the "Compact and Repair Database" option if you are using Access 2002 or 2003. If you are using Access 2007 or 2010, you can find the "Compact and Repair Database" option by clicking the Microsoft Office button and going to the "Manage" menu.· Highlight the MDB file that you want to restore and click the "Compact" button.· Enter a name for a new database file, which will contain the restored data from the damaged MDB file.· Navigate to the location on your hard drive where you want to save the restored version of the file.· Click the "Save" button. Access will now compact and repair the MDB file and save a restored version in the location you selected.
The repair method attempts to recover only the tables, indexes and queries in the database. Do not attempt to repair damaged forms, reports, macros and modules. Before executing the Compact and Repair tool, please ensure the following condition:
1. Do not Open Access database must closed
2. Sufficient storage space available - minimum double in size of your Access database on that Disk.
3. Close the .mdb file related to .ldb file before you delete the .ldb file.
4. Then Run the Compact and Repair tool
You say corrupt, in what way exactly? Do you get any specific error numbers/messages?
Have you tried Access repair program? Compact and Repair. If not, use it. But ensure that you made a backup, it is necessary because all the recovery tips can make the damage even worse.
Also try Jet Compact Utility. This tool created by Microsoft and it is much like Compact and Repair, but more successful in repairing.
If no one of above advice helps, then perhaps you need more powerful solution. In this case try to run a good third-party. I would recommend Recovery Toolbox for Access. It must help you. https://access.recoverytoolbox.com/
Have you tried creating a NEW MDB, and then IMPORTING the objects from the Crashed/Corrupted MDB?
This will SOMETIMES serve to rescue most if not all of the corrupted entities .
You can try:
eRepair Access is a powerful Access database recovery solution for damaged *.mdb and *.accdb files created in Access 2000 and above. Having such a tool at hand immediately after a database file corruption incident may save you a great deal of time, nerve and, of course, an ample amount of money that would otherwise be paid to third-party recovery services. With eRepair Access, you don't need to depend on anyone and entrust your Access data (often quite sensitive) into somebody else's hands. You don't have to wait. You don't have to call it a day knowing that the damaged Access file will not be restored (if at all) until tomorrow. With eRepair Access, you can be back in the game within minutes!
back up files on external hard drive!! mirror hard drive, will keep corrupted file, it might cause further problems. you have lost some critical files, but you might have isolated a virus . Move on, do a clean install, after reload the backed up files one at a time.

Simplify. Use a System DSN that uses a local drive letter. If necessary, move the database to the local drive to test.

When putting files up on your hosted site (or on your own server), make sure the file and the directory have the proper writes to Read/Write/Create. A special file called the .LDB file must be created and if it can't a ReadOnly status could be issued. It's a file that contains the names of the users currently accessing the MDB file. It stands for Lock Database. If you are running on Windows add these attributes, if it's linux (not sure why you'd use MDB on a LINUX box, but it would be chmod +777.
