Kobo for PC storage

Hi. I have a few books bought from Kobo in France
When I download a book via Kobo for PC, where does the download get saved?
I know it used to be my digital editions when I had a US account, but this does't seem to be the case any more.
Sorry if this has already been answered, but I did do a search, honest.

Kobo for PC only downloads the books in kepub format; a format that can only be read by Kobo applications.

On the KoboBooks website, you can download the ADE version of books you have bought.

Thanks Peter. Any way to convert them? The kepubs, that is?

To my knowledge, there is no way to convert kepubs because it is protected by DRM. However, you can download an ePub from Kobo and use the usual tools to read it on other devices (via ADE).

There is a way but we're not allowed to tell you how, due to the terms and conditions of this forum.

Epubs yes but I have yet to see mention of a DRM hack for kepubs.

though presumably if you... aehm... "hoover" the epub version and then "kobify" it again with the epub.kepub trick you'd get a "hoovered" kepub?


EDIT: of course one my wonder what the point of that would be, since if I am not mistaken only kobo devices can read .kepub files, so if you do have a kobo device you may as well use the original .kepub and keep a "hoovered" epub as backup.

The only reason I can think of to do this is if you want to change the formatting of a book but still wanted the "advantages" of the kepub format/reader. Otherwise, stick with the kepub and keep the ePub for backup or use on other devices.
