I am trying to open a
.gdb folder from an external drive with
import geopandas as gpd data = gpd.read_file('/Volumes/SSD/data.gdb')
and I am getting the following error:
DriverError: '/Volumes/SSD/data.gdb' not recognized as a supported file format.
However, when I am trying the same on my local storage,
geopandas can strangely read the folder just fine. Any ideas where this discrepancy in behavior might originate? I have observed this error with two different datasets so far.
I am on Mac OS 10.14.6.
I had a thought the files may have gotten corrupted when transferred to my external drive, but when copying back to my local drive I am able to open them just fine once again.
