I've received a ArcMap 9.3 compressed GDB that I need to uncompress using ArcMap 10.5.

Every time I try to uncompress the GDB (right-click, Administration > Uncompress File Geodatabase...) I receive the following error message: "file COM_utils.cpp,line 69: Unspecified error, (code 80004005)"

I can see the feature classes in ArcCatalog with the compressed version, but when I drag them into ArcMap the software crash. I've tried to search for the error code in different forums and on ESRI help page with no luck.


ESRI support confirmed the GDB was corrupt. Nothing much could be done about it.
