Finding Empty Books....
A quick preface of this is... I previously held all of mky ebooks on an exxternal hard-drive. Mainly through my own stupidity said hard-drive took a tumble and broke ! I managed to save some/most of the documents I held there originally and transferred them onto a new hard-drive but some of the docs couldnt be recovered but new corrupted files were now stored on the new hard-drive .
To save myself time and sanity, instead of going into every single book to find which of the books had been recovered successfully and which hadn't I thought that I would throw them all at Calibre in a 'see whats sticks' exercise. Problem is that everything 'stuck'. So I am left in the same situation, with albeit a prettier looking library than before.
I have created a column to tell me which formats are held in which records, and Calibre seems to think that everything is there in pdf format. But if i go into the directory, there is nothing held in the folder except the metadata file.
Is there any way that I will be able to find all of these files automatically on Calibre that I am not aware of (most probably) that means I can save a little bit of my waning sanity by not entering each book individually to see if the book is actually there?

First, do a library database check (library dropdown menu->library maintenance) and fix all the errors you can. Then, you can search for "formats:false"
