I went to retrieve a FGDB from archive today and found that It could not be read and gave a generic error.


I tried to read it in ArcGIS Pro / Arc Catalogue, both of which could not read it. I looked at different geodatabases and it seems the problem is hit or miss but may have to do with large that 100mb size (not confirmed). However, I found a database that had been archived and had a copy that had not been archived, both should be exactly the same except one is corrupt like above and the other is not. I talked to IT and he said we use VisaVersa for archiving data. Has anyone else had a similar problem and can give insight into it and how to remediate the situation?
