Exclamation [Google Drive Warning] Issue migrating Calibre Library to a different computer

Hello,

I recently changed computer, moving from a Mac Mini to a MacBook Pro. Everything good with Migration Assistant: at the end of the day I had Calibre installed on the new computer playing correctly my library.
Problems started when I had to sync my MacBook with Google Drive (GD). GD doesn't allow (God knows why) to sync a copied folder even if it is the exact original copy. So I had to redownload from the cloud the entire GD folder where my library is located. After doing it I noticed -my hands shaking- that GD did not keep the digits in brackets that follow the book's title for the folder containing the book (e.g. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (1169)). Of course now Calibre is not accessing the library anymore!

Does anyone know which steps should I follow to restore my Calibre library?

Thank you!

PS: I have kept the old library also!
