As for me, I'd like to at least try out the 64 bits version of Calibre but I really dislike apps when they don't allow me to have the important files, save the files, or make backup where I want in my computer, usually not on C that is for sure. It's not safe.

2 folders to back up, 1 IS tied to your OS logon. Been using Windows since 3.11 (the WFWG network version) and never had my user folder blown away out of the blue.
The configuration folder is easily reconstructed (though some
USER plugins do have extensive configuration files) . Preferences is what is mainly stored there.
All the books and Library data is in the Library folder.
