Calibre metadata.calibre not allowing updates

I have been uploading ebooks onto my Kobo - it just came from RMA and I have some 400+ files to load onto it. I deleted some folders on the Kobo using Windows Explorer on Win7 64 bit. I am running into the following error when I try to send ebooks to my Kobo. Is there anyway to unlock the metadata.calibre file?

(13, 'Permission denied')

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\", line 68, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\", line 303, in _sync_booklists
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\", line 304, in sync_booklists
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\", line 301, in write_prefix
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'K:\\metadata.calibre'

I think that Calibre has an issue with Sleep mode on the Kobo. If the device is in sleep mode when I set up for USB connection then the metadata.calibre file is not available for updates. If the Kobo device is powered off mode, then there doesn't seem to be an issue.
