Hello, I downloaded .lyr files (it was the only option available) and now I'm trying to convert to .shp, however when I right-click on .lyr in ArcMap it does not open the Export Data option and I also do not have the option to select the polylines / polygons by attributes, nor by location, that is, all selection or editing options are blocked, I can not edit the layer in any way, also when I right click the layer in "Edit Features -> Create Local Copy for Editing ..." I get the following message: "Unable to run create local copy for editing. . ". What can it be and what can I do to make it into an editable file?

The link for the files I downloaded is this:

Thank you for your attention.
