    Adobe Acrobat Reader could not open .edb file

    EDB files are used for faster searches on your Windows 10 device. It works like caches on a browser. May we ask if the EDB file size are increasing? It can can be a different issue if that is what is happening.

    Also, you need to restore the files manually to be able to find/open them. Please have a go with these instructions to open the backed up files:

    • Press Windows key on your keyboard or click Start.
    • On the Cortana search box, type Backup Settings and then click the result.
    • Click More options under Add a drive, then click
      Restore files from a current backup and browse the location of the files to recover them.

    Let us know if you've resolved the issue.

    i have a file called .edb on windows and it is 260 gigabytes.

    Adobe Acrobat Reader could not open .edb file

    No, the File History does not store the actual backup data in a EDB database file. Instead, it just copies the files with a date/time stamp tacked on to the end of each file name. For example, if you poke around the drive that is used for File History,
    you'll see a directory structure that looks something like this:

    D:\FileHistory\YOUR_NAME\YOUR_PC\Data\C\Users\YOUR_NAME

    That's where your backup files are...
