I just upgraded to (ArcGIS 10) SP4 and find that the export to a shape file via ArcCatalog from our ArcSDE (10), is not working. It starts of well, and then crawls to a feature class to feature class window moving at 1% per minute.
I have no problems exporting out of ArcMap (Data-Export). Anyone else have the same issue? Thanks
Do you need to regularly export feature classes out of on ArcSDE Geodatabase to Shape file format? If you do, try using the ArcSDE "sde2shp" administration command. You could create a batch file containing these commands. The sde2shp command is very fast even for very large feature classes.
