(This is probably a furphy, but anyway.)
I recall that about a million years ago there used to be a problem with the Jet engine when the MDB file was stored on a network drive. I did a bit of a search through the forum but cannot find anything apropos. All I really can remember is that one symptom was "suddenly" empty mdb files.  It was not an EA problem, as I said it was something about the Jet engine. 
Anyway I would presume that by now that issue would have been resolved, so this is probably a furphy.

I wouldn't be surprised if that was still an issue.  MDB files are generally excluded in all of Microsoft's replication mechanisms like Offline files for exactly this reason.
