Yes I was referring to ePub and not KePub, don't see any point in backing up a Kobo proprietary format when I may well be attempting to read the file in a non-Kobo (or Kobo-compatible) device.
I was also talking about the library on the Kobo web site when I log into it via a web browser. The files there are still DRMed.
As I now have purchased my first Kobo reader - an Aura HD - I can download them direct to the reader using the KePub format if I choose. But as I have only had it recently, this format would not be of any value until now. My purchases from their site would require me to download them to my PC so I could transfer them to either my Sony reader or Android phone or tablet (I use Mantano as it's much better at rendering ePub's). Having to download them via ADE and them strip the DRM before transferring to the device, although trivial, is a pain if you don't have to.
