It would be great if ArcPro would stop recreating missing file geodatabases. I deliberately renamed a file geodatabase (actually a few) and I did this in File Explorer - 'cos it's faster. Then when I reopened the project it breaks all my links (expected) but recreates an empty file geodatabase with the old name.
This is not useful - if a geodatabase is missing it's generally because of a deliberate choice on the part of the user and recreating an empty geodatabase is just creating clutter that I have to remember to clean up.
And if it's not a deliberate choice - if some one has accidentally moved or deleted the geodatabase - what is the point of recreating an empty one? The data is still missing.
Can we have this behavior stopped - or perhaps there is a way of stopping it already? If so - could we have this as the default. I have users unknowingly making empty geodatabases all over the show and it's becoming a problem.
