pdf-Recover removed in the latest version as the first (non-Adobe-driven program) the latest Adobe AES 256 encryption in the variant R6 - the equivalent Acrobat X Standard. The PDF document can be used further without limitation; this also applies to PDF forms!
pdf-Recover form the German manufacturer UNIVERSE Software GmbH, Solingen, automatically removes the encryption and is an indispensable aid for all those who want to use their PDF files but not known the master password to change the familiar limitations. Without the password the document content cannot edited or completed also text cannot be copied. Optionally, the document will not be printed or not fill form fields.
In the latest version, one click removes not only the master password, but also all the same restrictions in the document. Whether it's 40 bit RC4, 128 bit RC4, 128 bit AES or 256-bit encrypted. This also applies to the latest version of AES 256 variant R6. In addition, all the other versions of the 256-bit encryption are detected and removed. As a result, a 1:1 copy of the PDF source document is provided which does not contain any security settings more. All set restrictions are removed.
