Whatever has been evolved from a simple prototype by your local Access "guru" that has become crash-prone, corrupts itself so often and is so fragile and unresponsive that they all somehow think that moving to a "proper" SQL database instance on its own dedicated machine will magically solve all the problems (hint: only the tendency to crash and corrupt itself is solved, the rest of the issues still remain)
