Yep - I found the setting - Thanks. I knew there had to be a way. Just replaced my HD so no settings saved on anything so taking time to put things back the way they were.

Dang -- it's been a while since I set it up. Forgot there is a setting.

I usually transfer my settings across.

I had to replace my HD but had Calibre library on back-up. When I reinstalled Calibre it saved most of the settings but I had reinstall the plug ins. I must have had it set to "only selected books" before but default must be whole library as that is what it was doing. Lot of stuff you take for granted until disaster strikes. Even with a back-up no walk in the park to reinstall your OS, all the updates, applications. Also your back up sometimes puts things in the wrong place so stuff has to be moved around. I am on day 3 of this debacle.

Sorry to hear it. I make sure to backup the settings together with my library.

Aside -- it helps to transfer settings when you keep it version controlled with setup scripts a la etckeeper and others. But I do use linux, so chances are I am more obsessed about this than most people.

I think your setting are automatically saved in the .mdb file in Calibre Library. That does not include any 3rd party plug-ins as those are wiped out. Have to be careful about using a recent back-up from a corrupted HD. If the file is sitting in a bad sector you are just copying back garbage. I did lose a lot of pictures and about 40 videos. Ironically most of there were computer related "how to" videos I DL from youtube.

Certain settings are stored in the database, but others are saved in .json files in the appdata/plugins folder. QC, which operates the same on any library, uses the latter.

Calibre does NOT use Access. MDB is Access

Calibres DB, metadata.db contains Specfic Library settings Only

The Preferences section contains the systems per User (even if only one) Settings which should persist over any Library used.
