Hello,

We were having problems syncing data from our iPads to AGO a while back.  To back up this data, we copied the .geodatabase file and all associated data from the iPad to our local server.  It was my understanding that I would be able to bring the data back in to a FGDB using the 'Copy Runtime Geodatabase to File Geodatabase' tool, but it seems not to be the case.  I receive 'Error 001730' when I try to run this tool.  Using ArcGIS 10.3, Collector 10.3, and AGO.

Is there some setting I need to enable in order for this tool to work?


Thanks,


Jason

Hi Jason,

I was recently having the same problem but managed to resolve the issue by copying the runtime geodatabase files to a folder on my desktop in order to simplify/shorten the file path before using the "Copy Runtime Geodatabase to File Geodatabase" tool. By default the runtime geodatabase directories are rather long and convoluted.

Then I copied the converted FGDB to the appropriate directory as required.

Cheers

Chris

copied local, tried different drives, shortened the folder name, then shortened the file name itself and still no luck... Error 001730

EDIT: this is a runtime geodatabase from Android

Were you able to figure out a solution? I've done all the steps listed above and I am still getting the error. I have successfully run this tool many other times, so I am perplexed why this one .geodatabase file is not working.

Any additional information would be greatly appreciated!

Still having this issue myself. Anyone have found a solution?

The path could not by shorter, and the error still pops up.

From experience, if its a one-off with a gdb that wont sync or convert, the runtime gdb is corrupted. Try clearing the edit tables in the database.
