Easily decompress EPUB, edit it, and recompress.

eCanCrusher is a simple drag/drop utility to recompress and decompress EPUB folders/directory structures. It converts folder into an .epub file and vice versa. We have both Mac and Windows versions available.

Look under the heading ‘eCanCrusher’.

Drag an EPUB folder onto the eCanCrusher icon to recompress a folder. It will convert it into an .epub file.

To decompress EPUB, drag an .epub file onto the eCanCrusher icon. It will create a decompressed folder.

Previous versions of eCanCrusher only offered folder-to-.epub file conversions. Our latest version can convert both ways.

We’ve also made the tool more configurable. Double-click the application icon to configure  the tool. In the dialog you can determine what happens when there are existing files or folders in the way.

Previous versions of eCanCrusher were only available as part of the ePubCrawler product.

We’ve now unbundled eCanCrusher from ePubCrawler. We’ve also made it a freebie. It is now available separately from ePubCrawler.

Unlike ePubCrawler, which is donationware, eCanCrusher is free (but donations are accepted).
