I'm trying to setup a versioned database to a small office and was wondering whether ESRI's File Geodatabase has that type of capabilities? Researching the topic I found conflicting data from ESRI's support web site.
On the one hand:
(File Geodatabase) "Versioning support - Only supported as a geodatabase for clients who post updates using checkout and check-in and as a client to which updates can be sent using one-way replication." (http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/manage-data/geodatabases/types-of-geodatabases.htm)
But than I found this comment from ESRI support team:
"No, versioning is not possible in a file geodatabase. File geodatabases are designed to be edited by a single user and do not support geodatabase versioning. Versioning, a mechanism in which all data edits are recorded as rows in delta tables, is only supported in an enterprise geodatabase." (https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000012595)
So, can or can't you use versioning with a file geodatabase?
