"database file" could not be found and is required to complete this operation - FileMaker Pro 6

We are currently unable to load our FileMaker database as it cannot find one of the .FP5 files.  I have attached 3 screenshots. 


MLC 1.jpg shows the missing file in Explorer and where it should be in FileMaker

MLC 2.jpg shows the error when loading the database that calls upon the file

MLC 3.jpg shows the FileMaker about screen.


I have given everyone access to the database files in case it was a permissions issue.


I was wondering if it could be because the file is 2GB in size.  Are there any file size limitations with FileMaker Pro 6?  If so, is there anyway around it?


Thank you for your help.
