I started the process by listing the children's authors then closing out the calibre program. I created a folder called calibre library 2, then cut & pasted the children's authors from the calibre library folder into the calibre library 2 folder with the intention of moving the calibre library 2 folder to the separate computer.
Now, my problem is that these authors/books are still listed in the old calibre library even though I've removed them from the actual calibre library folder. Is there a way to do a "cleanup" on the old calibre library so that these missing books will be automatically removed from the listing or do I have to manually delete each one?
Thanks an epic ton in advance.
You did it the hard (and wrong) way
Step 1: Switch/Create-Create (Kids) tick the use structure
step 2: switch back to yous
Select books by any means (tag,Authors...): Right click: Copy to Library (Delete)
