PDF ePub DRM Removal is a lightweight tool intended to eliminate ADEPT digital rights management (DRM) protection from various types of electronic publications, including Adobe Digital Editions, Barnes Noble NOOK and Kobo. The program supports such file extensions as EPUB, PDF, RTF, HTMLZ and TXT.

The utility has a streamlined interface, and you can perform the DRM removal operation in just a couple of clicks. Fortunately, the tool can process batches of files. For this purpose, you can import complete folders and then select the files you want to decrypt. Likewise, you can import documents directly from Digital Editions and NOOK libraries. Once they have been added to the list, you can check their titles, file names, formats and modification dates. It is also allowed to use a custom output directory or keep the default location.

When tested, the utility successfully removed protection from the selected documents with no quality loss whatsoever. Likewise, the tool worked quite fast and without affecting system performance. It is also great that it does not really change anything on the source files as it creates completely new documents instead. However, it did hang when I tried to import a large folder with all its subfolders.

All in all, PDF ePub DRM Removal is a good solution when it comes to handling protected documents. The product is shareware and, as such, can be tried for a limited period of time. As to affordability, it seems to me that, even considering the present discount, the product may still be somewhat pricey.
