I have a few questions in regard to the management of mosaic datasets, which I am hoping that someone can answer as there seems to be little information in the help documentation.

1. If I delete a mosaic dataset and I have created overviews for that mosaic, can I simply delete the corresponding overview folder for that mosaic. In other words, if I delete a mosaic called xxxx, can I delete the folder xxxx.Overviews created when I made the overviews?


2. Although this is probably not good practice, if I rename a geodatabase containing mosaics, should I rename the corresponding overview folder to match the new name of the geodatabase? From what I have seen, I do not have to rename the overviews folder as they still seem to work after renaming the . Even if I re-work the overviews they still stay in the old folder.

However if I create a new mosaic file in the renamed GDB, it creates a new overview folder with a name corresponding to the new name of the GDB.
