Create Sink Structure Error

Hi All,

I'm currently trying to run through the ArcHydro Tools 2.0 Tutorial with the provided San Marcos data. I'm running ArcMap 10.2 and using the 10.2 x64 version of the ArcHydro Toolset; the OS is 64-bit Windows 7.

I've successfully created a Flow Direction Grid using the FilSink DEM produced during the course of the tutorial. In order to use the Adjust Flow within Sinks tool, I need to use the Create Sink Structure tool, which is where I run into an error. Running the tool from the toolbar produces the error below:


Running the tool from the toolbox produces this error:


The tool appears to create the SinkPolygon feature class, as well as the Sink Poly Grid and the Sink Point Grid. By adding these layers into the map I'm able to successfully create a Deranged Flow Direction Grid, though the resulting cells beneath the sink polygons have no data (is this correct?). However, the SinkPoint feature class doesn't exist (as is clear from the error message).

Is this a bug or user error? Has anyone seen this before? If so, what did you do to fix it?

Thanks for the help!
