I have an ESRI Geodatabase (Version unknown) which is not displayed in ArcCatalog as a gdb but as a normal directory with a ".gdb" ending. It could be, that whilst it was being unzipped, something got corrupted.

I have tried restoring it with the ArcGIS Pro "repair GDB" Tool but to no avail.

Is there a way of determining what is wrong or missing so that I could repair it?

    Not really. There are too many opportunities for corruption in a failed extract. You need to go back to the source and recapture it for transfer. – Vince Feb 7 '18 at 14:33
  • Could it be, that the GDB is for a newer version of ArcGIS than mine? – Robert Buckley Feb 7 '18 at 14:40

    No. FGDB hasn't changed since 10.0. – Vince Feb 7 '18 at 14:43
  • ...and if it was in fact a Personal Geodatabase?? – Robert Buckley Feb 7 '18 at 14:58

    personal geodatabase files have a mdb suffix, not gdb – atxgis Feb 7 '18 at 15:06
