Did Calibre copy my library over to this new Library folder? If so, does that mean it's safe to delete my Reading folder, or does Calibre still need it there? In other words, I want to make sure the Calibre's library isn't dependent on my Reading folder. It seems as though my library is now taking up twice the space.
Any help would be very much appreciated!
If you go into calibre and look at the config it will show the path to your library. That folder, its contents and any sub folders are used by calibre and shouldn't be touched.
If you pointed calibre to a folder that already had stuff in it, then all bets are off.
