We created a Check Out replica (.mdb) from an SDE geodatabase and made edits to that replica. We thought we synchronized those replica changes and then we deleted the replica instance within SDE. We then determined the replica changes were not synchronized. So we have the .mdb replica containing the changes but if we try to synchronize it again we get the error: "No replica found in the workspace or invalid replica" and then a note appears on the Synchronize Changes Wizard form: "Geodatabase does not contain the relative replica".
Is there any way to synchronize the changes stored within the .mdb replica?
