Move a file geodatabase

You can copy file geodatabases from one folder and paste them into another under Folders in the Catalog pane.

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

  1. Open an ArcGIS Pro project.
  2. Connect to the folder that currently contains the geodatabase you want to move.
  3. Connect to the folder to which you want to move the geodatabase.
  4. Right-click the geodatabase, click Copy, right-click the new folder location, and click Paste.
  5. You now have a second copy of the geodatabase. If you no longer need the geodatabase in the old folder location, delete it.
