I remember having this problem. I'm not sure how your program is working but could be due to sqlite using the file. You may need to exit sqlite before attempting to delete the file.

Other options are try garbade collection or put the delete function in a loop/timer until file is deleted as it can take a few seconds for a file to be deleted/moved which prevents you accessing it.
