When pasting a feature class from a Geodatabase to a Personal Geodatabase in ArcCatalog, the following error message is returned:
"Copy Failed. File sharing lock count exceeded. Increase MaxLocksPerFile registry entry."
The file sharing lock count has been exceeded.
Increase the MaxLocksPerFile value. The ArcMap Advanced Settings utility (..\ArcGIS\Utilities) allows the safe modification of registry settings used by ArcGIS.
This step requires ADMINISTRATIVE access permissions.
