Yes, that's it. I assume it would be either rebuilt from scratch or an error would be reported in such case. Never run into a case when this file was corrupted due to a disk error for instance.

Yes, you can delete it in safe mode. However, what I don't understand is why you would do that. Why do you think it's corrupted?

I think it's the way it's supposed to be. I have local.db in both of those locations on Windows 7 Pro x64. I wouldn't consider it corrupt simply based on the file location.

You have only one local.db file as "C:\ProgramData" and "C:\Users\All Users" refer to the same location.
