I am using ArcMap 10.8 to export Data (from the Table of Contents menu). So I chose - Data - Export Data. I then change my location from a gdb to a folder, so I can have the ability to chose the TIFF format.


But, when press save I get an error: Failed to save raster dataset, Failed to create raster data set.

Is there something here I am missing?

    Nothing seem obviously wrong, did you check that you have enough disk space at your chosen location ? (your picture show an 617.89GB uncompressed size) – J.R Mar 12 at 16:42
  • I actually think it must have been that, so I changed to the data frame I needed and reduced the size by a lot, and then it worked. Feeling not so tech savy haha – M.T Mar 12 at 19:59
  • Don't add .TIF to name just call it a20131 because you are setting the format from the drop down. – Hornbydd Mar 13 at 2:46
  • If this is now resolved, please add an answer and mark it correct. This will avoid people unnecessarily reading through the whole issue only to find it is already resolved. – Son of a Beach Mar 16 at 6:09

Thanks, by reducing the size of the file it worked!
