So I developed a script that traverses through a root directory, and any subdirectories and catalogs layers files. Then exports these layer files' FGDC metadata and outputs them to a folder. The code at this point is hit/miss sometimes completes and sometimes processes "most" of the input and errors out close to being done.
Can anyone point out what's going on here? Error code is
File "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\arcpy\arcpy\conversion.py", line 624, in ExportMetadata
ExecuteError: ERROR 000582: Error occurred during execution.
