Unable to remove statistics from certain raster datasets

Last Published: April 25, 2020


In ArcGIS 10, we have the ability to delete raster dataset statistics through the raster dataset properties dialog box.
However, removing the statistics from a TIFF dataset with internal statistics or a GRID does not work. After a refresh, the statistics are present again.


The TIFF and GRID formats do not allow us to delete the statistics out of the header file once the statistics are present.


There is currently no workaround for this issue.
