Hi,

is there any way to avoid getting a error 210 when running one instance of ArcMap or ArcCatalog, doing some geo-processing and starting another instance of ArcMap or ArcCatalog?
It is very frustrating when your software is opening the Add Data dialog or a Save Data dialog while some model or Python script is working in that folder/database. The result seems obvious...  the model or the script crash, unable to write any longer to the location!

GIS moved on and nobody needs a format consisting out of at least three files! No, nobody needs shapefiles, not even for the sake of an exchange format. Folks, use GeoPackage to exchange data with other GIS!

Hi Sol,

and thanks for the hint! That has to be sufficient. I rather go every time through the whole file structure than crashing my processes. The models, scripts can't be scheduled to run later... they run several days anyway.
Working on national datasets and big cohort data comes with its own challenges. 😉

Bests, Thomas
