No. For calibre, I assume I could copy and paste to another location or drive?

Yes. At present, ~218GB of other books (mostly PDFs) and a folder labeled DLLs (no clue what they're for). There was also 74 GB of videos which I moved to another disc.

1.) No problems that I'm aware of. 2.) I would feel bad.
