If it helps at all, every time I tell calibre to "open containing folder" a new empty folder appears with a new number.

For example I have a folder

Calibre Library > Chris Nicholson > The Elephant Keeper (1299)

but if I select The Elephant Keeper and choose "open location" a new folder is created:

Calibre Library > Chris Nicholson > The Elephant Keeper (1892)

Is there a way I can link my books back properly?

So, I guess what I'm asking is, is there a way for me to edit the metadata.db file to give all the books their proper numbers. I'd rather do that for 1700+ books that have to reimport them and re-edit all their metadata by hand.

Thanks,
Marcy
