Microsoft Fix for Geodatabase Data Corruption Issue

In case you missed it, ESRI finally released a link to fix the issue with data corruption to geodatabases on shared networks, this is a god-send for me as it means I don’t have to save a copy of everything locally “just in case”.

Information on Microsoft Patch to Fix Data Corruption Issue

In May of this year, we informed you about Microsoft update KB 2775511 that could result in data corruption when using ArcGIS on a Windows 7 system and writing data to remote data storage on a Windows Vista, 7, 2008/2008 R2, or 2012 system.

This is a follow-up to inform you that Microsoft has now released a fix under KB 2732673 for this issue.

Esri has tested the fix and verified that it resolves the data corruption problem previously mentioned.

The following describes what you need to do to apply this fix:

  • If you previously installed Microsoft KB 2775511, download and install the update found in Knowledge Base article 2732673 according to the IT policies of your organization.
  • If you have not yet installed Microsoft KB 2775511 but plan to do so at a future date, install the update found at KB 2732673 now to avoid any issues that may impact file geodatabases and shapefiles stored on network drives.

See Esri Knowledge Base article 41119 for further information and updates.
