Orchard.sdf file won't upload during Web Deploy (Orchard 1.8)

I've been using Web Deploy via Web Matrix 3 and host provider ( with every version of Orchard since 1.4. I've updated my site to 1.8 and I can no longer update the Orchard.sdf file via Web Deploy. I've tested it using two of my workstations - 1) Windows 8.1 Enterprise, using latest Web Matrix and 2) Windows 10, using latest Web Matrix.

What's strange is that after a long period of time (I suspect that cache has expired), the Web Deploy will push the Orchard.sdf file. I've only achieved this once out of several tries - spanning several hours.

I've attached the resulting log file:

End log file ---------------

BTW, my E drive is a recovery drive; consequently, I'm not sure why it would try to read the Orchard.sdf file from that drive.
