DRM removal from PDF and subdirectories

Hi guys,

i am trying to remove some DRM from a few of my pdf so i can convert to other formats. I use PDF Password Remover v3.0, but it wont search for pdf s in subdirectories. Any software out there that you can dump a dir in it and it wll search in all subdirectories and then remove the drm? (would just be too long to do it dir by dir)

any tips are appreciated!

thanks!

No one has any idea if there is a software that does it, with gui or console?

You can certainly write a recursive script to walk the tree and then invoke what command you wish. This is a good exercise in script writing. How you need to proceed is dependent on what platform you are on.

Walking a directory tree in Windows/DOS is not to hard. Just use the "for" command in a bat file.

Type

for /?

To see the options of this command.
