Re-importing Library after corrupt metadata.db
My metadata.db file became corrupted. I tried recovering it with sqlite3, but there are errors when doing that -- I figure it is toast.
So, Calibre is restarted with zero books, but I have the old directory structure with all the files including the metadata.opf's. How can I go about re-importing all of this into Calibre? It does not appear that a standard import will work. Perhaps if I imported each Authors directory individually? But I am hoping there is a less tedious way.
I did a search of the forums, but could not find anything. Although I might have not searched the appropriate words.
Thanks in advance.
