    File name too long? I can't open, copy/cut, nor rename files.

    Level 1
      Please help me out. The Acrobat reader does not allow me to open, copy/cut, nor rename "long" file names.

      I used to be able to do so, or at least to rename them and then open them.

      I am Master's degree student and I have too much information I can't aford to loose.

      Please help.

      Thank you.

          Adobe Reader doesn't copy, cut, nor rename any kind of file, ever. Can
          you let us know the exact symptoms you are seeing?

            Ok, what I am refering to is that the files will not open as I try to do so from Windows, and as I try doing so from the Reader it says "not a valid file name".

            It used to hapen that if I had saved a file with a long name, subseqently I was not able to open it nor copy it from windows, so I used to rename it (using Windows of course) with a shorter name (the extension was allways intact).

            I have no problen opening any other file or even other pdf's, but now that I am trying to access some particular files I find myself with this problem (that I did not have before; actually I had been able to open many of these files before).

            I think and am allmost certain that it is a problem with the Reader and not Widows, because the only program I have updated is the Reader.

            Thank you.

            PS: before you ask, the files have no special characters (actually I am not allowed to save file names with these characters as you must know) and the all have the *.pdf format.
