Using Python To Export Enterprise GDB to File GDB

Question asked by NEOMAPPER on Aug 1, 2018
Latest reply on Aug 7, 2018 by tpcolson

Recently, we've been having issues getting our python script to copy our enterprise geodatabase to a new fresh file geodatabase. When it's copying one of the feature data sets to the local file geodatabase it generates an error saying a table already exists and skips over the entire data set which holds 90% of our data and onto the next feature data set. Does anyone have a working python script that exports an entire enterprise geodatabase?
