How can I move the library to another drive

I use an SSD for my boot drive so I try to map all of my data to another large HDD. Calibre puts it's library under c:\user\"username"\Calibre library.

I want to move the library to another location. How can I do this? I didn't see anything in the preferences for this.

There is an arrow
It is next to the Library Icon
there is a choice called Create Switch
(M$ must have had influence)
the third choice is Move

Simply copying my entire library directory to another drive and opening it seems to work better for me.

That's what I do, too.
Much better to know whats going on, by actually moving the library folder manually, than wondering what the program did.

Pne advantage of using Calibre to move the library is that only moves the files it knows about. Therefore if after such a move there are files that are left behind it can be worth checking them out to see if they need to be added to the library.
