Is it possible to backup/restore DRM between different computers ?

I bought many eBooks at "Diesel Ebooks" (http://www.diesel-ebooks.com/) and I can read them in my desktop computer. I tried to copy them to my laptop computer and I got errors related to the DRM (Digital Rights Management) [Adobe Reader]. The only solution I found was downloading each eBook again, from my BookShelf, to my laptop. The problem is that my BookShelf is large, so it takes to much time to download each eBook again. My question is - Is it possible to backup/restore DRM between different computers ? I would backup all DRM settings from my desktop PC and then restore them in my laptop PC, avoiding the re-downloads... Is this possible ?
Thanks in advance.
Regards.

That depends on the DRM system used. Only the provider of the documents can tell you for sure, so I would talk to the Diesel EBooks company to find out.

What about keeping a backup copy of each ebx.etd file ?

Again, you need to talk to the publisher of your ebooks. There is no standard way of doing this, and different DRM methods/ different publishers can (and do) use different approaches to what's possible and what not. I am not familiar with this particular publisher, and you really should talk to them. They have all the information. All I can do is speculate.
