I have searched throughout the forums and have found two similar threads, but nothing that resolves my current problem.
While moving my library to a new external hard drive, I inadvertently deleted the metadata.db file. At first, I was not concerned because I assumed that once I directed Calibre to the new library location, a new db file would be created. Well it was created, but it contains no information regarding my library. And shows my calibre library to be empty. However, all my files are safe and sound in the new location.
Please, Please tell me that there is a way (short of re-entering the 3000 books individually) that I can do to regain my library.
Also, I had just upgraded to the latest Calibre version (6.26). Not sure if that matters...
