I update our internal file geodatabase with shapefiles supplied by state government (parcels, roads etc). After learning Python I would like to now speed up and automate this process. My question is which arcpy function would I use to;


Compare the names of the downloaded shapefiles with the names of feature classes in the file geodatabase ie parcels.shp vs parcels? Would I just use the overwrite or should I delete first and then copy new features?


Thanks for your help,
