Unregister as Versioned (Data Management)

Unregisters an ArcSDE dataset as version in ArcCatalog.

When unregistering a dataset or feature class as versioned in ArcCatalog, a warning may appear informing you that outstanding edits still remain in existing versions. Unregistering the class as versioned will remove all the edits. To preserve the edits, you must compress the database before unregistering the dataset.
