Currently when exporting an XML Workspace that can only be done to the C-drive as per ESRI support. As more organizations move to secure Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) and virtualized application delivery not all users will have a traditional C-drive. Allowing ArcGIS Pro to export these files to a shared drive or UNC location would solve this issue.

That screenshot shows that you're trying to write the xml into a file geodatabase.

I don't see any documented information about the output location being limited to the C: drive. https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/tool-reference/data-management/export-xml-workspace-documen...

If you try writing your xml output to a folder on your E drive (not into a file geodatabase) does it work?


I actually got it to work after upgrading to the newest version of Pro.

Thanks for the follow up. Glad it is working. Closing this idea.
