Question How do I remove books from Calibre without deleting it?

Hi,

As with the title, I'm wondering if it's possible to remove a book from the collection without sending it to the recycle bin?

Checked under the options setting and I don't see any switches.

Would appreciate some help on this.

Thanks for reading.

What is the goal? To remove the book and the entry from Calibre but not actually delete the book?
If that is the case then you could open the path for the book, move it elsewhere and then delete from Calibre

I would highly recommend using Save to Disk instead of copying the file because Save to Disk will also update the metadata.
