Helpful tools for doc’ing geodatabases

This is more of a bookmark to myself. Found these on ArcScripts, first is Geodatabase Designer 2, put out by ESRI’s Richie Carmichael. Does a very nice job of spitting out the XML (or HTML) that documents the contents of the GeoDB in excruciating (a.k.a. helpful) detail. The next is Geodatabase Diagrammer for ArcGIS 9, originally written by Mr. Zeiler (a.k.a. author of the best book to the ESRI way of viewing the world) which was updated by Greg Nichols for Arc 9. This utility help you make those pretty GeoDB diagrams.

Both of these work swimmingly unless there is an error in the geodb in which case they spit out an error and stop or just crash (in order by application). Where are the utils for fixing corrupted PGDBs?
