I need to update a 3rd-Party vendor with updated centerlines, address points, and parcel shapefiles form our SDE. I can do it though ArcMap and ArcCatalog by right-clicking on the feature in the TOC and exporting to shapefile. It takes about 2 minutes to manually run the entire export process for all three. When I try to do the same through Python, the address points and centerlines takes about a minute to process and the parcels takes over 12 hours.
My parcels are for the entire county and there are only about 67K records. The shapefile DBF is 191Mb when I run it manually. I have tried both FeatureClassToShapefile_conversion as well as CopyFeatures_management. Both take a ridiculous amount of time to process parcels into a shapefile.
