Identity Tool Error

I am trying to utilize the Identity tool for a large data set and running into the same problem, which is preventing me from completing my work. This is the same issue faced by Grant West in 2013 but there is no resolution for solving this issue. 

Error I recive while attempting to run this tool is:

Executing: Identity AB11_Pop AB_09_MC_400 C:\Users\Liam\Desktop\POPCount.gdb\MC09400 ALL # NO_RELATIONSHIPS
Start Time: Fri Feb 02 13:22:24 2018
Reading Features...
Processing Tiles...
ERROR 999999: Error executing function.
The table was not found.

Invalid Topology [Topoengine error.]
Failed to execute (Identity).
Failed at Fri Feb 02 15:28:19 2018 (Elapsed Time: 2 hours 5 minutes 55 seconds)

This process works on smaller sample data but while attempting to increase the volume of polygons it fails every time. I am unsure if it is a resource issue. 

My computer specs are as follows:

  • Windows 7 64bit
  • 16GB ram
  • Intel i7-6700 @ 3.4GHz
  • 1.2TB space of free space
  • ArcGIS 10.5


I have attempted to run this process in ArcGIS Pro 1.5 and it is unable to open my polygon file. 

Any help would be great, thank you,
