It would be good if we could "protect" offline base maps (tpks) to stop users deleting them.

I've found a few times when the users have deleted the 90GB tpk I've uploaded onto the iPads.

Are we going to gain a way to protect them in a future version?

We're about to roll out to a bunch of fire-fighters and they have a habit trying out everything...

We do show different options so if the downloaded map is going to be deleted there are options to delete features only or features and basemap. We also block deleting any basemaps that are being used by another map or if the basemap is being used by another account. Thank you for the enhancement suggestion and this is something I will discuss with the team.

Cheers

How do you have a 90GB file on your iPad?  Did you mean MB?  In any case, if there is room, could you potentially put the same file on the iPad as a backup in a more hidden folder?  I know it isn't the exact result that you would like but it could save some downtime.

90 gigabyte. 128GB iPad. The performance is surprisingly very good. It draws as fast as you pan.
