I have been having some sync issues with my offline areas in Field Maps, so I've copied across all of the geodatabases out of the field tablet so that I can manually sync to ArcGIS Online. However when I try to open the biggest of these in ArcGIS Pro, I get an "Underlying DBMS Error" and it refuses to open.

Does anyone know of a repair or work around method for this?

Hi Rhett,

Thanks for getting back to me.

I was wondering if it might have been a data transfer issue, so I re-copied the geodatabase (not the whole folder, just the one that was giving me the error) and it now seems to be working. So I guess the previous geodatabase folder must have been corrupted somehow?

I'd still be curious to know if there is any way of repairing or recovering a geodatabase that is giving these sorts of errors though...

Did you copy the geodatabases or the entire folder?

When I copied the mobile geodatabases over from iPad to Pro, I had to copy the entire folder they reside in before Pro would recognize them as a valid dataset.
