I have a question. I have created 2 different feature datasets in SDE, each with multiple feature classes. In one feature dataset I can 'Copy & Paste' feature classes to a new File Geodatabase but in the other I cannot. I should mention I created one of the feature datasets while the other was created by a co-worker, could this be a permission issue?

Running ArcGIS 10.1, Windows

Thanks

Not sure why the Copy/Paste is not working....however you can use the below two tools to copy the FCs along with related data:

Export XML Workspace Document (Data Management)

Import XML Workspace Document (Data Management):

What is the error observed?

Just to confirm..you are copying Fcs from the File gdb into the dataset in sde or the other way round?

There is no error, I am able to copy but when I go to paste, paste is "greyed-out." I am just copying the feature class from the feature dataset in SDE to a file gdb. I has a mentioned previously the feature class(es) I created are able to copy & paste while the co-worker created feature classess are unable to copy & paste.

Have you tried importing the Feature Class and checked if that works?
