ArcGIS Field Maps stores offline replicas in an SQLite database or runtime geodatabase (as .geodatabase files) before they are synchronized to the feature service. In the event the offline edits cannot be synchronized, the locally stored edits are extracted from the mobile device and converted to a file geodatabase. The instructions provided describe the steps to do this in ArcGIS Field Maps on Android operating systems, and how to work with or convert the recovered data.
Note: These instructions form the last option to salvage data from the device. Contact Esri Support Services for help with device information and errors.
Recover the runtime geodatabase from the Android device
<Name of phone>\Internal shared storage\Android\data\com.esri.fieldmaps\files\<username>\mapareas
Note: If unable to browse files using the Android device, install a file explorer application to access the data.
Working with or converting the recovered data
In ArcGIS Pro
Note: Feature Service sync is available as of ArcGIS Pro 2.1.
Sync the edits recovered above using the steps below.
Alternatively, convert the runtime geodatabase to a file geodatabase using the following steps:
In ArcMap, use the runtime geodatabase recovered from the device as the input for the Copy Runtime Geodatabase to File Geodatabase tool. The output of this tool is a file geodatabase containing unsynchronized edits and photo attachments that can now be migrated back into the original database if necessary.
Note: The Copy Runtime Geodatabase to File Geodatabase geoprocessing tool is available at ArcGIS Desktop version 10.3 with all license levels: Basic, Standard, or Advanced. However, all geoprocessing tools in the Attachments toolset require an ArcGIS for Desktop, Standard or Advanced, license.
