Question how to upgrade calibre?

I saw the notice that there is a new version of calibre and I downloaded it. Now what? I drag the icon from the dmg onto my applications folder and it asks if I want to replace the older one. I assume I want to do that, and I will still have my previous database intact? I would hate to overwrite the database with a blank one.

This is on MAC.

Thanks,
eP

Calibre's update will never cause you to lose your database, metadata, files or books. Calibre updates about every week to ten days. There would be an awful lot of unhappy people if an update deleted things.

If you want to be ultra safe, just make a copy your library folder and stash it temporarily somewhere else (such as the desk top) until after you've made the update.

OK super duper dummy question. Sorry. Here goes, I have a MAC. I've been using Calibre on and off for a few months. My Calibre version is 9.5. I just download the 9.38 version. My Calibre icon is on my desktop. Now that i have download the newest version, how do I update my current version?

Just drag the new version from the disk image onto your desktop, replacing the old version. (Personally, I keep calibre in my Applications folder, with a reference in my dock.)
