Windows 7: files not deleting properly???

files not deleting properly???

I have a MS access file that had old data in it and was in a directory named "database" on my Win 7 machine. I made a change to the file on my XP machine and copied it over to the Win 7 machine to the "database" directory. When I open it up on the Win 7 machine, the old data is still there. If I move that SAME on the Win 7 machine to a new directory the correct info is there! What the heck is going on????

issue is "ghost files" the Win7 make for the restore utility! Fix....Don't put the program in the c:\programfiles(x86) path! I created a new path right off the root of the drive and my problem is gone. Win7 sucks.....
