Question Calibre Collection (can I transfer)

I downloaded this wonderful program and spent weeks loading all my books and the metadata. After doing all this on my laptop it then dawned on me that I should have done this on my main computer.

Is there a way to transfer all the data onto my main computer, or do I have to start from scratch.

Just copy the library folder onto your main computer and tell Calibre to use that as the default library. Be sure to include every subfolder and the file metadata.db at the root of the library folder.
