"Could not rename file" error

I have been a PDMworks user for a couple years, and have never had this problem. I was doing some routine cleanup of our vault (moving projects into sub-directories, renaming projects/parts/etc) because it had become quite a mess. However, one file refuses to be renamed! It is used in several dozen places and I would like to change it since the person who originally drew it actually mispelled the name. Here is what happens:

When I try to rename via Solidworks Explorer "Solidworks Rename" or via the PDM sidebar in Solidworks "Rename" I get the error "Could not rename file." No other explanation. I have tried rebooting, restarting the vault service on the server, all to no avail.... Any suggestions? Maybe I'm missing something simple.
