Yes, that's true. If I do a factory reset, I send all non-finished books. Plus if I have an unread book in a series, I usually send the rest of the series on.

I also use several reading lists and column icons based on the status. This makes it very easy to see what's what.

Thank you for clarifying that for me.

Just means that when I go to load my books on to my (still)-soon-to-arrive H2O, I need to add a temporary "ondevice" tag to the ebooks that are currently also on my glo, so I know which books to transfer. Easy enough.
What I did when I moved from my T1 to the H2O was to create a new library. I then use ondevice:true to get a list of all the eBooks. I them copied them to the new library. If you do that, you can then go to the new library and get the reading positions for all the eBooks you've started reading/have read and then send all of those eBooks to your H2O. You will also have the collections as you've defined them. That's why this way works.

I think a new library is overkill. My normal workflow uses a send-to-device reading list. As I get new books, or fiddle with the existing ones, I add them to the list. They get sent to the device when it is next connected.

What I would do is:

- Create a new send-to-device list for the new device. Set it to send on connect and clear itself. You will need to connect the new device to do this.
- Connect the old device and store the current reading status of the books
- Select all the books that are on the device and add them to the list
- Disconnect the old device
- Connect the new device
- When the send is complete, disconnect the new device and let it process the books.
- Reconnect the new device and restore the reading status
- Disconnect the new device
- Move away from the computer and read something

If you don't use reading lists, add a tag to the books on the old device when it is connected. Something like "copyToNewDevice". Then select all these and send them to the new device,

I should add that someone did this by copying everything from the Glo to an Aura HD. That included the device database. They might have needed to modify the user table in the database, but I can't remember. From memory, the thread is in the Kobo forum.

Hi, David!
All the time, the database check - and the database backup - worked well. There was no change in the firmware, reset or similar. However, in the last days, I always find this message after connecting the device to the computer:

Is this dangerous? Can I do something? - Thank you for your help again!

That's the error shown when doing a manual check database. Are you getting a similar error from the driver when you connect? If so, it is probably not correctly showing the books that are on the device.

In any case, the error says the database is corrupt. And, it says the database is in such a bad state that it can't be checked. Usually, you get "Ok" or a list of errors. With a corrupt database, the device runs from the in memory copy of the data. It just can't write any changes to the database. If you power off, you will lose any changes. This can be the status of the books you are reading, annotations, shelve or the latest books added to the device. In the last case, it will reprocess the books each time. And if the database is bad enough that the device can't read it, it will throw it away and take you through the setup process to recreate it.

The fix for you is to restore a recent backup if you have one. If you don't you will need to signout on the device. The device will restart, and take you through the basic setup process. This includes recreating the database and then processing your sideloaded books.

Update to Kobo Utilities plugin - V2.0.5 - Fix an options migration problem

I have just updated the plugin to V2.0.5. This is a small fix to the options migration. There are no other changes.

As usual, calibre will announce the update in the next hour or so.

Well, the device is all the time working without any issue; I wouldn't have suspected any problem without having done the "check database". Nevertheless, I remembered having tried to install Sergey's plugin some weeks ago - curiously without success. I desisted, removed the files that I had copied to the device and forgot about it. But there might have been something wrong.

Nevertheless, I'm inclined to wait with a reset or other changes until the next firmware update, unless there might come up some difficulty.

Thank you!

I can understand that, but I would recommend trying to fix the database before the next firmware upgrade. With what I think is the current of the database, the restart needed during the upgrade is going to find the database is bad and take you through a set-up at that time. It's also possible the database is not corrupt enough to trigger this, but any upgrades to the database fail.

What I would suggest is that when you have a bit of time to spare, back-up the database and other files, or even the complete disk. Then power off and on again. The see what happens. Either the device will prompts to do the set-up, or it will start. If it starts, you can look and see if anything is missing. That is books, collections, annotations or the reading status. If you it prompted to do the set-up, you can restore the saved files and you should be back where you were.

Sometimes it's a strange experience, how similar, despite of very different backgrounds, the structure of consideration can be. Overnight, I thought better, and, though not understanding every peculiarity of your advice, came to the same conclusion, even thinking of when I would have a little spare time to do this.

Personally, I thought of doing simply a factory reset; as I have all my books - except those that I'm currently reading - on the nSD card, I would only have to repeat the setting of my preferences thereafter.

What do you mean saying: "power off and on again", after only having backuped the hard drive? Without changing anything, the device still works well, so there is no guessing about strange reactions. And do you mean with "start" the regular booting process of the device, in contrast to a new setup?

"Restore the saved files" is copying them back to the database, right?

Sorry, but I haven't done such things ever.
