When I carry out a raster analysis such as a "DEM fill" from the hydrology tool usually as on other computers, ArcGIS builds a raster attribute table on the fly. However, on my computer that doesn't seem to be the case unless I choose to save my output in a geodatabase but if I save it in a normal folder it will not create the raster attribute table. This is a big problem for me when I run automated analyses that don't give the chance to select the output target. I run ArcGIS 10.2 and I have done the following to no avail;
1. Fresh ArcGIS installation
2. Fresh windows installation along with.net framework.
3. Change Arcmap options to build pyramids on yhe fly.
