I usually have all my PDFs on Google drive and use it to update pdf on the fly as i change machines often. However, there are daily occurrences that when i am modifying a perticular pdf on my iPad Pro, pdf which is hosted on google drive, suddenly displays a message that the pdf cannot be saved and a recovery file is stored locally. At this point, i can still modify the currently opened pdf but if i were to close it, all the changes that i have done after the error in saving message i received are all discarded.


Additionally, when i try to access the recovered pdf that is stored locally, the Acrobat application just freezes. I tried to close the adobe app again and relaunch it and its the same issue - i just cant open the recovered file.


There is no way for me to recover all the lost changes and i have to redo all my work. Is there a solution to this?
