Certainly a noob mistake. You should NOT have told calibre to store your library in your existing folder of ebooks. IF you hadn't of done that you would have been fine. Calibre doesn't edit your original ebooks in any way shape or form.

Firstly I think you are incorrect, it is Author/Book/. Not sure why you even care what the file layout is. Do you complain about the way your browser stores your booksmarks? It is just an internal implementation detail.

I think the settings are stored in a .py file so that should be portable.

You can choose the location of the database. Just go into the settings. But keep in mind the "database" is the .db file AND all of the folders/files also which you should 100% dedicate to calibre and not expect it to keep any type of layout that you have or want.
