They literally have no file size. Not a zero but a blank entry.

Calibre doesn't know about any of the books. It initially knew about some but my efforts to remedy the situation resulted in it knowing none. I'm not really sure what happened, except that it sucks. I will be backing up in like 5 places after this. I have all the books backed up, but not having the metadata.db file correct is a killer.

The automatic merge would avoid this problem.

And this problem.

New files always add with the current date. A slight problem when I wrote the merge function is that all records always have a date. There's no way to tell which is the "better" one, so it's always set to the first selected record in a manual merge. In an automatic add/merge the existing record is never touched, so its date is always the final one.
I don't understand. I want the date to always be the earlier date. How do I ensure this?
