I'm trying to get a python script that has been provided to me to run as a tool. One of the parameters is an output path where the tool creates a file geodatabase. I have set the data type to folder and it errors out saying it does not exist or is unsupported. It will warn me that the folder exists prior to execution with the little yellow(!) icon. if I run it in that condition, the existing folder gets deleted. (Thank goodness for network guys and nightly backups...)
I have also tried setting the out put path to data type = workspace and get same results.
