We use a third party software that requires checked out replication for getting our GIS data back and fourth from a camera truck to the office.
My problem is that while data was checked out, a compress happened on SDE and the parent replication was lost (unregistered).
I now have data in the orphaned child replication that I have to get back into our SDE, but can't since there's no parent.
Trying to recreate the parent using Schema only does not work as it creates duplicate fields with _1, which is not what we want.
Any help would be appreciated, as there's a quite a bit of data that I absolutely do not want to have to manually input into SDE.
