I had a feeling what I did was too simple to be correct.
I'm a big fan of using the save to disk feature to back up your books, I even wrote procedures here to do just that. The truth is that the simple way to back up your library according to the creator of Calibre is to copy your library folder to another location. By default the metadata.db file is in the root of the library folder.
