Calibre News Folder Oddity

I have been using Calibre (I'm fairly new to Calibre) to download news to my Libre and putting it on the main memory. When I open the News folder (on the device) and then go back, everything not on the main memory has disappeared. If I go back to the main menu and then back to "ebooks", everything is viewable again. This isn't a huge issue for me but it is annoying. Is anyone else seeing this? I am using version 0.7.16 of Calibre.

What version of the Libre firmware are you using? I don't see this issue with my News folder. Libre firmware 18g.

My Calibre is empty. All of my books are gone. This is a nightmare.

you probably just pointed at the wrong library location (or you were BAD and renamed the Calibre Library folder)

Run the startup wizard and choose the new (place) name

I have a Calibre icon on my desktop that I drag books to or that I just click to open. I opened it today and it opened and said I had zero books. I then checked the folder in 'my documents' and the folder is still there but it has a tiny metadata bit and nothing else.

Restore your metadata.db file from backup.
