If not, what is the correct procedure to make this so?

Thank you

Install Calibre, (remember the location of the Library folder) then shut down.

Copy the ENTIRE contents of your old Library folder Into the New folder. Start Calibre. Note: you may have to use 'Create/Switch' to point at the new location

If you want your other settings, do the same with the configuration folder ( use the button in Preferences: Miscellaneous to locate both) Note: you may have to use 'Create/Switch' to point at the new Library location on starting
