I think you are using NTFS partition on file server. File has broken a link with NTFS partition structure and windows is not recognizing this file. First run a chkdsk on file server and then try to delete. If file is not deleted after performing chkdsk then use NTFSDOS utility from Sysinternals to delete this file.

Let me know.
