Hello,
I have a problem where I can't think of a way to copy certain layers to a new dataset. I thought I'd copy it as a normal folder, but it doesn't take the whole layer, which would then be executable in ArcGIS Pro.

Does anyone know of any way to do this?

Do I have to upload layers to ArcGIS Pro and then copy them?

 

Thank you for your reply.

David

Where are these layers stored now?

I would use the tool "Feature Class to Geodatabase" which can import/copy it to a gdb or dataset from a shapefile or a gdb feature class.

I think it is the best practice to always copy/edit/delete data from within ArcGIS (for example the Catalog).

It the layers are in a geodatabase, make a gdb in the destination folder

Create a file geodatabase—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation then

Copy Features (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

or

Feature Class To Feature Class (Conversion)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

and there are other options
