Cannot delete, rename, access, take ownership or move 1 file on NTFS file system

I am running a Windows 2003 Member server on a Windows 2000 domain. I have a share named "ACSNET" on the 2003 server and it is mapped to a "I" on all the client workstations on the domain. The ACSNET share contains the data for an application (ACS) we use to manage our membership records.

The ACS application stopped responding on a client computer this week and apparently a file became corrupt. The filename with path is f:\bbc\acsnet\acsdata\awvtcard.yg0

I need to delete or rename this file, but am unable to even right-click and get properties on it.

I have run chkdsk, tried replacing permissions from the parent folder level downward, tried all the suggestions on >> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/320081/en-us.

I need help on this as soon as possible! I am willing to try anything [except, of course, reformatting the RAID array and reinstalling :)]

Move everything of value out of the "acsdata" folder, then use the "rd /s acsdata" command to remove the folder and the damaged file within it.
