Hello everyone,

I have a several questions  related to mobile geodatabases.

Can I open a mobile .geodatabase with ArcGIS desktop or do I need ArcGIS Pro?

Can I create  a .geodatabase with ArcGIS Desktop?

Can a mobile .geodatabase point directly to SDE or do I need a synchronization tool to refresh the database?

How can I view an exiting .geodatabase with ArcGIS desktop and ArcGIS Pro?

How can I add/remove layers to a mobile .geodatabae with ArcGIS Desktop or ArcGIs Pro?

Thank you.

Some of your answers are here

Mobile geodatabases—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

They are new to ArcGIS Pro 2.7  are stored in an SQLite database

Then the warning

All mobile geodatabases are stored in SQLite databases, but not all SQLite databases are mobile geodatabases.

size and limitations

Mobile geodatabase size and name limits—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

and not a mention of SDE anywhere
