I know this behaviour for other file types: It happens if these files
are either hold open (Outlook .pst files come to mind), or even modified
while rsync is in progress.
Thus, can you really rule out that noone else is accessing this file
while rsync is taking place? My experience with Access is rather old
(Access 1.1 and 2.0, some 15 years ago), but for these ancient versions,
every time someone accesses this database, he opens the .mdb file
himself in a shared manner. Thus, even if nothing is running on the
server, there might be some remote user that is still accessing the DB.
