Hello. I have a question. I own two computers with two separate ArcMap 10.3.1. I have a geodatabase on the one computer with my different feature classes and i want to transfer the whole geodatabase to the new computer with the same feature classes. However when i am in arc catalogue or arcmap and i click on the geodatabase to export to geodatabase multiple it turns my feature classes to shapefiles.

 

Is there a way to maintain the hierarchy within the feature classes?

 

I tried to copy and paste and it wouldnt allow me.

Do i create a new geodatabase in the new comp and export one feature class at a time to add in it? isnt there a way to transfer the entire geodatabase to the new comp?

 

Thank you

Also I am still new at GIS so if i seem unclear please let me know.
