    Default Re: Adobe Reader cannot open pdf after upgrade to windows 8

    I personally wouldn't use a flash drive as my only back-up.

    Hmm, on a side note I got the forum theme back to the old style.
    My cat must have been using the keyboard again.
    And it is snowing here.

    I mainly use flash drives for installer (exe) files, to keep from having to re-download everything on every install that I have to update apps. It's a fast way to do it, especially across 15 Windows installs & a few VM's. Counting backup before each update, that's 2 to 3 days work, depending upon how I feel. Plus, I have one as a Portable Apps drive.

    PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB, portable and cloud drives

    That one has a lot of useful apps on it, browsers, virus/spyware/malware scanners, office, uninstallers & much more. One can store their favorites on it, and use it on most any Windows computer.

    I backup my flash drives on the same schedule that I do my computers, once monthly. Also, much of what's on it is in my Downloads or Documents folders on my Data partitions anyway. It's not my main backup program. For these type of things, having extra copies in different places is a good backup strategy.

    And anything very, very important, is copied on paper & goes in my safe deposit box at the bank.

    Strange, I just used IE 10 and the pdf opened up fine within the browser using Sumatra.

    Rich, welcome to the forum! I hope that you're enjoying Windows 8 CP while learning it.

    Right now, there's some apps that works for some users, and doesn't work for others. Probably due to Windows 8 is still a beta, and there's thousands of different system configurations that it has to adapt to. As time goes by, more & more apps will (or won't) work for most everyone.
