questions about libraries

1. What is the difference between saving to disk and creating a new library for backup purposes?
2. If you made some metadata changes to your books and wanted to make sure that any changes are reflected in the folder where you have been saving to disk is there a way to select all your books and have the books you edited updated? If you changed the title of some would that leave you with two copies of that book?
3. What is the easiest way to move your library to a new computer?

1: STD does not copy ALL files in associated with the title
2: STD will replace Existing names and Create NEW(changed are New) names (and NOT do anything with the old names)
3: Copy the ENTIRE library folder (the one that Contains Metadata.db)
