Is there an additional file associated with the database that is still there?
Did you delete the file in both the host and the briefcase?
Another approach, if the briefcase has lost its bearings or somehow corrupted is to delete it and then re-create it. You need to be *very* sure you have the full set of files in the Host data store.

Actually I thought I had deleted the original file from the folder it was trying to sychronize but it was still there.  OInce I removed it from the host folder I was fine.  My bad.  Stupid error.  Thanks.
