Anybody actually get this site to work? It just says the unlocking of {filename} failed because of the following reason(s): * The file submitted is not a PDF

Why, yes, it is. So I tried to report the error using their web form, but that failed too. “We’re sorry, but your message was not sent. This is probably a technical problem on our server”

Well, that was fun.

Thanks, Liron! It’s on its way. It may be that I’m misunderstanding what the site is supposed too do. Feel free to post here if I need straightening out :)

If this site doesn’t work for you, there are several alternatives that also allow larges files to be uploaded. Check out pdfunlock.com for example

I haven’t tried this one, but I have had great success with the referenced Freeware PDF unlocker. Once you install the app, you simply drag the locked file over the shortcut and it produces a new unrestricted version of the file. I don’t believe it works with password protected files, either. Used to be I would try to find a new program that did this every 3 months, because I never got one to consistently work, but I haven’t had to use anything since I started using the Freeware PDF Unlocker. And no, I don’t work for them, I just like the software and the price is right.

Sidereal, I’m sorry the site couldn’t help you. I’d be happy to help if you could send me the PDF that the site couldn’t handle by email, to webmaster at freemypdf dot com.

Thank you!
Liron.
