Move a mobile geodatabase

You can copy a mobile geodatabase from one folder to another under Folders in the Catalog pane.

Follow these steps to move a mobile geodatabase in ArcGIS Pro:

  1. Open an ArcGIS Pro project.
  2. Connect to the folder that contains the geodatabase you want to move.
  3. Connect to the folder to which you want to move the geodatabase.
  4. Right-click the mobile geodatabase, click Copy, right-click the new folder location, and click Paste.

    You now have a copy of the mobile geodatabase.

  5. Delete the mobile geodatabase from the original folder location if you no longer need it.

Alternatively, you can copy the mobile geodatabase using the Copy geoprocessing tool in the Data Management toolbox. This tool works the same way as the Copy command in the Catalog pane, copying input data from one location and pasting it to another location.
