    Hi everyone,
    I'm looking for a good PDF file unlocker to remove password protection from a PDF file so that I can copy text from this PDF file. Actually, it was created by a former employee who has left the company. There is no way to contact him and ask for the correct password. I can open this PDF file but I cannot print or edit. Can anybody please help?

    Note: We can't afford to upload this confidential file on some random site that claims to remove password security.

    Hi,
    It seems that your PDF file is protected with owner password. That's why you're not able to copy and print it. You can use this software (pdf unlocker) to unlock your PDF file:
    http://www.mypdfsolutions.com/

    There are some free ones too (there are lots of positive reviews but it never worked for me, :D): free PDF unlocker.

    I Hope this will help you.

    Hello, thank you for your quick response. Yes, this free pdf unlocker works with only older version of PDF files. It didn't work for me too. I'm going to try the another program mentioned by you and let you know about the results.

    Hey i had a similar problem, i still havent found the perfect solution, but if you try converting your pdf to text, with maybe you can then take the text out of the pdf, just like if you copy paste it. Im not 100% sure this works with password protected files, but you can give it a go :)
    regards
