Because you choose not to.

Limiting your organization to a rigid file structure is old-fashioned.

Since you use Dropbox it is really no harder a simple sync between folders and you have a backup and everything just the way you want it. The limitation isn't with the software the limitation is in your vision.

For Pete's sake open your eyes calibre insulates the user from any rigid file structure, that is not how calibre works. Additionally it will do essentially what you want with minimal effort.

If you want suggestions for alternatives go to a different sub-forum and ask. This is a calibre support forum. Mobileread has plenty of other forums that are more general in nature.
