Using ArcGIS 10.2 for desktop, basic licensing.
I was deleting some fields (time stamp, date, etc - but not an object ID or other non-editable field), when I got the General Function failure message - not able to delete field.
Now I am not able to preview the feature class geometry or table, nor am i able to load the feature class and view it in a map.
This happened once before a couple weeks ago, and I found a nice forum discussion that told me how to fix it - I believe something locked up, and I had to use windows explorer to change a file name, and then everything worked beautifully again.
Of course now I cannot locate that fix. Any ideas?
