File geodatabases - problem adding a feature class with same name as a past (deleted) feature class

Hello, any file geodatabase wizards out there willing to kindly help? I've got a (very large sized) File Geodatabase in which I've deleted a Feature Class and I'm now wanting to add an updated version of that Feature Class. Now, and I think this is crucial, I'm wanting to use the same name. Does anyone know any reason(s) why it won't let me and says that the old/deleted Feature Class still exists?

 

FYI

# I'm working in Arc 9.3 if relevant;

# I've tried switching the computer on/off;

# there are no 'locks' that I can see in Windows Explorer; and

# the old/deleted Feature Class doesn't appear to exist anywhere, such as via ArcCatalog, 'Add Data', or in house software.

 

Thanks for any help,

Steve
