Help needed - Joining 2 Calibre Metadata Files

Was tagging the metadata of my ebooks and accidently cut the Calibre metadata file from the folder... when I reopened Calibre I noticed my library had disappeared... thinking it was just a glitch I carried on.

I have just realised that all the tagging I did was on the metadata file... duh.. and have 2 metadata files that need combining to show the whole of the library.

Please could someone help me with this??

Change calibre to point to the "other" metadata file. Do a save to disk to some other location... then go back to your other metadata file and import all the ebooks that you just saved to disk.
