Accessing Library OK, but books are on local drive

That worked better.. now i can get into the library.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding the environment variable.

I've got the variable set for a local drive c:\mybooks\metadata.db
I've to the actual .epubs on a NAS drive "z:\shared\ebooks"

If I add a epub from the Z drive, it does show up in my library, but it is also copied to my c:\mybooks folder. I was expecting that the book would NOT be copied to the c:\mybooks, but rather referenced by the Library and reside on the Z:\shared\ebooks folder.

I'm sure I missed something, but right now it doesn't seem much different than if I had all the ebooks on my local drive...

Thanks
