I have deleted one of the tlog file but when I query the sys.master_files the file still there with OFFLINE status, then I checking in sys.database_files and the file is no longer available, but again in SSMS I still can see the file, and when I click on it it says the file are no longer exist. So how do I cleanly remove this file in SSMS and also in sys.master_files
