It's a locking file which contains record-locking information, and should disappear when none visits that database.

Been a while since I used MS Access but there used to be an option for exclusive access. Make sure that box is not checked.
Never seen that naming convention before but it's probably a new thing. Access used to create a corresponding .ldb file that contained the lock.
Hope it helps.
