ArcMap version 10.5 

I am trying to compress my geodatabase however when I attempt to do it I get the following error: "ERROR 999999: Error executing function" and then it goes on to say that the geodatabase is open in ArcMap on my computer when it is not.

Can someone help me with this?

Are we talking about a file geodatabase?

Is the file geodatabase on a network drive and being accessed by another machine? If its in dropbox try moving it out of that and compress that version.

How are you attempting to compress it? From a script or from ArcCatalog, if ArcMap is not open?
