Corrupt "pmr file" in MXF folder, Avid says delete, file does not exist!!

Please Help

I worked on a project yesterday and all was good. At the end of the day I quit Avid and ejected one of my 4 drives. The next morning I remounted the drive and it came up fine. I launch Avid, and it says there is a corrupt file in the pmr file. "If possible, delete the pmr file and relaunch the app."

I went to the mxf folder in question and there were NOT a pmr or mmob files, or a Creating Folder. I've deleted mmob files in the past for database rebuilds and not had a problem.

I restarted the PC, (windows 7 pro 64 bit),and relaunched Avid hoping it would see there was no pmr or mmob files and rebuild. Same warning. What do I do? I need this footage. 14 years on Avid and 7 years on mxf files and have never had this happen.

Thanks,

Chris

Did permissions change so that a new file cannot be created by Media Composer on start up? What happens if you copy one from another folder into that one, does the OS try to overwrite it? Once there, can you delete it?
