I am unable to delete a GRID. When I try, I get a pop-up box:
[INDENT]Delete Failed Failed to deleted selected object(s) Failed to open raster dataset[/INDENT]
It is equally unsuccessfull in ArcCatalog and from ArcCatalog pane within ArcMap.
I had a process run overnight that is supposed to result in the creation of a new grid. The process has worked fine on 9 or 10 previous operations. The only thing different this time around was a search radius value (which occurred within a range of previous, successfully employed values). This morning there was a message notifying me that the operation had not run properly. Unfortunately, I didn't think to take a screen shot and the operation does not show in my "Results" pane/history. When I try to add the GRID to a map, I receive a pop-up error:
[INDENT]Raster Data Objects Error Invalid raster dataset. Failed to create raster layer.[/INDENT]
I want to delete the corrupt file and re-run the process b/c my file naming convention is sequential and includes the search radius.
I'm reluctant to delete from Windows Explorer as I don't want to corrupt the INFO files and my other grids in the directory. Aside from copying the files I want to keep to another directory, then deleting the entire existing directory, does anyone have any suggestions?
I am running v10.0 SP4 with a full ArcINFO license. The processing inputs are also GRIDs and no files are associated with any type of geodatabase.
