General Function Failure and Out of Memory Error Messages

I've been having issues in ArcMap 10.6 with attempting to export a layer as a shapefile but the "Out of memory [GDB_items]" message appears and when I try to follow through, I can't export the layer as the shapefile. 

In addition, one of my geodatabases in which I have stored most of my files for ArcMap gives me two messages now every time I want to access a file within it, either giving me "General Function Failure [GDB_items]" or "Out of memory [GDB_Items]". I'm a novice when it comes to this program so I don't know what to do to try and resolve this issue. If anyone know how to resolve this issue please let me know.

How big is the dataset you are exporting to a shapefile, that format has a 2GB limit?
