I'm using model builder and trying to copy a SDE database to a file geodatabase. The SDE db has several feature datasets, feature classes, relationship classes and tables. Each feature dataset within the db has feature classes, tables, & relationship classes. I can�??t seem to find an easy way to copy everything from SDE to my personal DB. This is a process that is going to be repeated weekly which is why I�??m creating a model. I currently have a model that will do this but it�??s huge and cumbersome since I have to create each feature dataset, then copy each feature class, table & relation ship class, etc. I was wondering how others are doing this. I've tried the basic "copy" geoprocessing tool but it gives me errors when I do. I've attached a pdf of my model so you can view what I've done.
Are you sure Geodatabase Replication isn't suitable for your scenario? This would save you from trying to handle this through models, and additionally have the benefit of just copying over changes, instead of everything.
