Getting 'invalid disk structure' error when accessing a DB

From a Notes 6 client I am trying to access a database and it says:
Error: "This Database Cannot Be Read Due To an Invalid On Disk Structure"
I can open this database no problems on any other PC. It's just this one. Any ideas?
The icon for that database is corrupt on that PC. Go to the workspace view and find the icon and remove it. Reading the database should cure the problem. If it doesn't, you can remove the icon again and compact your workspace before adding the icon.
