Metadata Question

I have many many metadata files in my Calibre folder. Do they all need to be there? Should I delete old ones and keep only the newer ones?

If you mean the metadata.opf files there should only be one per book title. 12000 books = 12000 metadata.opf

They are there for restoring the database. Once you turn them on you can't turn them off AFAIK.

I've heard bad things can happen to your database if you mess 'under the hood' in Calibre. Best not to touch anything in the directory system.
