how to unlock a locked database? Error'd out during start up on database review.

Seems like EM doesn’t like my database as it was scanning How to unlock it? If the database is corrupt and I have to wipe it out, are the Rules kept elsewhere (I have over 300 rules and I do not wish to lose them. Ditto my folder structure.

System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteException (0x80004005): database is locked
database is locked
at System.Data.SQLite.SQLite3.Step(SQLiteStatement stmt)
at System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteDataReader.NextResult()
at System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteDataReader…ctor(SQLiteCommand cmd, CommandBehavior behave)
at System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior behavior)
at System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
at MailClient.Storage.Data.DataStore.GetConnection(String relativeName)
at DbRepair.CorruptionChecker.CheckCorruption()
at DbRepair.FormCheck.Check(Object state)

Anyway to recover from this?


in this situation I would recommend you to restart your computer and try again, this error is mostly caused by another app which is accessing database at the same time.
