Update to a current version of Acrobat or Reader.  They did work to keep Portfolios working after Flash EOL.

I'm having the same issue. We use Adobe version 10.1.16 and all the (thousands) of Porfolios we've created over the past few years aren't opening properly. The file opens but only shows the most recent file, and the navigator doesn't load so I can't access any of the other files in the Portfolio. I tried downloading free Adobe Reader DC and it lets me create new Portfolios but that won't let me view the thousands of existing Portfolios I made. How can I view those? Would be devastaing to lose them all.

The latest free version doesn't let me view my Portfolios. Do I need the latest paid version in order to view them?

I have Acrobat Pro DC so I don't use the free Acrobat Reader.  Sorry.  I'm moving this question from Flash Player to Acrobat Reader where it belongs.  Hopefully one of the product experts there can help you.

I have the most current version of Adobe Pro XI and the portfolios still only open the most recent file. Do you have any other suggestions. I too have many Portfolios I created from emails because of the ability to open the attachments from the .pdf and the ability to have multiple emails with multiple attachments in one package.

Upgrade to the latest release versions of Acrobat in which Flash dependencies were removed.  However, that probably won't help with older documents created with older versions of Acrobat.
