Hello,

I'm having issues uploading and publishing a geodatabase with attachments to AGOL. The data was originally created in AGOL, with attachments enabled, and after field data collection it totaled four thousand point features with 3.8 GB of photo attachments. It functioned flawlessly.

Next, I exported the data as a file geodatabase, downloaded it, and made a copy (keeping the original as a backup). Both the original and the copy work without issue in ArcGIS Pro. I cleaned up and performed some minor edits on the newer version, and uploaded it back as a zipped .gdb to AGOL. It has been stuck on "Creating Service" for 24hrs now, and previous results have given me "there was an error", with no clear cause. I've also tried sharing this data as a map in Pro, that has also resulted in a non-descript error.

Is the file size too large to re-upload even though the data functions fine in Pro, and the un-exported dataset also works fine in AGOL? Any tips or tricks to fixing this?

My backup plan is uploading the .gdb without attachments, preserving the IDs, and re-adding those attachments to an exported .gdb at a future date.

Thanks!
