General Function Failure - Data in a fgdb on a server

Hi all,


We are using ArcGIS Desktop 10.5.

I have created a file gdb consisting of around 20 fcs, which sits on a share drive on our windows file server.

For some reason I keep getting the dreaded ArcMap Drawing Errors message:

One or more layers failed to draw:

FDO error: 0 [Failed to label layer ASSETS for class default.]

General function failure

Drainage: General function failure


This happens to all data stored in the fgdb. The frequency is probably every 15-30 mins.

Imagery (or other .shp files) that are not in the fgdb but reside on the same share drive on the server are fine.

The only way to operate properly in AM is to shutdown AM and restart....fairly annoying.


Anyone had this issue? A way around it?

Could my fgdb be causing a problem?

I have compacted the gdb and same problem persists.
