    Default Skydrive cant open .PDF file

    Hi all,

    I am not sure if there is anyone who has the same problem of skydrive. So I start this thread. I added a .pdf file to my skydrive app. This file is about 38.5MB. I am pointing out the size because I have another .pdf file in skydrive and that is about 1.5MB. I can open the .pdf file of 1.5MB, but cant open 38.5MB. I can see the message "one file in progress" and it keeps openning, but its slow. I am thinking that maybe this file is too large and it needs some time to download.

    I am trying to login my window live account to see the file in skydrive. When i click the file of 1.5 MB, it shows me a precess bar and keeps opening, but after 10 mins, still same thing, not open.

    When i click the file of 38.5MB (in window live), it begins to download. After the download finishes, I click the file, no file opens, no error message.

    I have used skydrive in windows 8 since skydrive was released and met a few problems. But all are fixed. Now there is a new problem. I am not sure if I make all clear. If you need more information, please let me know.

    It may very well be the size of the file. Since this is free storage (I assume you have signed up for the free 25 GB storage the same as everyone else has) and there are MANY people that have this same free storage, their servers have been inundated and can't keep up. This is what happens. (Just watch the MS servers the first day or 2 after Win 8 RP is released. It will take hours to download Win 8 RP, if at all)

    Yes, Ted. I am one of those users who sign up for 25 GB storage. I understand that it need much time to open larger file. But why I cant open the file of 1.5 MB in windows live account? This file can be opened in skydrive app. Even though I have download the file of 35 MB throgh windows live account, it still cant be opened. I am looking forward to RP and hope RP would be better. Thank you, Ted.
