Failed to Add Field Error

I am attempting to add additional fields to my file geodatabase feature class.

I was able to add two additional fields and then received an Add Field Failed error message.  The error message indicated the following "Failed to add the field to the table/feature class.  General function failure".  This feature class is not being accessed by anyone else.  I viewed the directory in Windows Explorer and there are 4 lock files that are initiated when this file is open but they belong to my PC alone.  I've attached both the error message and lock files for your evaluation.


Can someone please advise on how I can remedy this situation...other than exporting it out as a different feature class name...make the necessary changes...and then import it back in to the directory.  I'd rather not have to redo all the relationship classes over again with a new import.


Thank you in advance.
