No! DANGER! Calibre will MOVE the books to the new library. If you delete them, they are gone. POFF!

Instead:

Copy the folder Calibre Library. The copy may be named "Calibre Library (copy)".

Then create a new shortcut for calibre, using this command:

calibre --with-library="Calibre Library (copy)"

Start Calibre using the new shortcut and verify in Preferences that you are using the copy.

Start removing/adding/experimenting.

Edit: Updated to 0.7.9 and the Preferences setting for the library is gone... Good!
