Exclamation Problem generating catalog - help! ><

Hello!

For some reason a few days ago I started having trouble generating ePub catalogs in Calibre. This happened after I left it running overnight to create a particularly big catalog. Previously I just made separate catalogs for each author in small bunches.

Does anyone know how I can fix this??

Thanks in advance!!! ^^

Error details below:

The error indicates that the size of the compressed file used to store the cover thumbnails would be too large to fit in a 32-bit space. That's a *very* large catalog. Performance would be slow to sluggish, if you could load it at all.

How many books are you trying to catalog?

You can try reducing the size of the thumbnails, eliminating the thumbnails, or (more sensibly) go back to building smaller catalogs of sections of your collection.

Thanks for the reply! Actually, I have been trying to catalog a smaller number of books ever since trying to catalog the large # failed. The large # by the way was about a 180+ books or so... but now even when I try to catalog a few books or even one book I get the same error :/.

Actually, I just deleted the "thumbs.zip" file that was in "/Users/Teresa/Library/Preferences/calibre/caches/catalog/thumbs.zip" and when I tried generating a catalog again it worked! Yay!

Sorry about the trouble, and thanks for your reply and help!

FWIW Very large is closer 10,000 or more.
You have a very small library

I copied the library to another location but same error.
I tried removing thumbs.zip to no effect.
Clearly I have either bad data or bad fingers but I don't know where to look.
Help ? Please ?
TIA

It appears that you removed the section of the log that might have contained some clues.

My best guess is that you have some tags/genres that are somehow causing problems.
