DeDRM files without calibre creating its own tags?

Hey there!

I was wondering if its possible to "disable" calibre to making its own tags and marking/modifying files when going through the DeDRM process? (meaning file names, metadata and whatnot)

If so, what to change or where to look?

Thank you!

Basically, the answer is no to the file name. calibre will normalize the filename for the internal library copy. See Want to change folder structure or file names in the Calibre library? as nothing has changed in that regard.

As for tags and other metadata? Unless you run Polish or ModifyEpub, the copy of the file in the calibre library will not be modified beyond what DeDRM needs to do. You can always save to disk a copy using either a template to rename or a simple rename after the copy without modifying the metadata (uncheck Update metadata in saved copies in Preferences => Saving books to disk).
