I'm looking at this code Save to Layer File and have a question for you.

Save To Layer File—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop 

My question to you is ; if I save a layer to lyr file in ArcMap 10.5.1 but need to use it in ArcGIS Pro .

Would that work if I add the lyr I save open in ArcGIS Pro ?

I have a lot of layers that are done in ArcGIS 10.5.1 in Citrix and when I open it in Pro and I have them there but they are showing here in the picture I pasted.

Here is the example of the red exclamation point . 

What is the solution for this ?

Never mind. The only way around is to export each layer to File Geodatabase and copy them from Citrix and then put it in the C drive.  Fix them to get each re-source to the c drive.

That is the only way around but it is not that hard to do unless if you have many of them !
