Hello,

I am trying to use the tool "Copy (Data Management)" from ArcMAP 10.5.0 to copy a Geodatabase from local drive (D:) to a network drive (Z:). and every time I  got the following error:

ERROR 000260: Failed to copy D:\T\New File Geodatabase (4).gdb into Z:\2)GIS_and_Design\7)CrescentLink\CrescentLink_Users\Ahmad_Saleh\Ahmad_Saleh.gdb
Failed to execute (Copy).

But the unusual thing is  when I go to the destination folder I am able to located  this Geodatabase  and also I can connect to it  and see or edit  the data inside, everything looks normal!.

The tool worked and copied the GDB to this location but it also throw  the previous error!.

PS: I have full read/write permission on this network folder, which mean that the tool has the full permission to write at this folder!. The same tool works fine if I used it to copy from Local to Local folders, and fails if tried to copy from Network to Network Folder!.

Have anyone had this issue before ?

Thanks,

I reached out esri support and it seems that its a bug in 10.5.0 & 10.5.1

BUG-000110678
Synopsis:The error '000260' is returned when copying workspaces between machines in the same network.
This will be fixed in ArcMap10.6.1

Have you tried copying this to a drive without parenthesis in the name?

I just did a quick test.

Input data= E:\test\Mydatabase.gdb

Output=E:\test\My)Folder.

^those parameters have an error in the gp tool.

If I create a folder named MyFolder instead of My)Folder, then it works...

Thanks Tina for your input, I tried your solution, The tool worked with me even if I have  parenthesis in the name! (in local drive) 

I also did one more test, I tired to use the tool to save on a network folder that doesn't have any  parenthesis in its name and I got the same error

 ERROR 000260: Failed to copy D:\T\New File Geodatabase (4).gdb into Z:\GIS\GIS.gdb
Failed to execute (Copy).

Thanks alot

After spending a few months with ESRI support we had the same outcome. In Collector we have numerous map services saving attachments to SDE Oracle database, trying to copy or extract the attachments does not work. running the export attachment python script exports 1 attachment. After troubleshooting with ESRI Support and even trying this in arcGIS Pro we determined it to be BUG-000109584

shutil.copytree(sourceGDB, targetGDB) works as a substitute for Copy_management when copying file geodatabases.

I am receiving the error in 10.6.1, copying from a Postgres enterprise GDB to a file GDB on the same machine.

Though the BUG-000109584 status is still opened and "in product plans", it seems to be solved in 10.8
