Calibre showing multiple formats

I'm using Calibre 0.8.21 and i've noticed that some books in my library are showing that they have multiple formats... but when i click on the "Path: Click to Open" to look at that book's directory, there's only a .mobi file, cover.jpg, and metadata.opf file.

Some of these books were imported as something else like an epub and converted to mobi, but i've deleted the epub file manually.

Others are files that never had anything but a mobi.

This didn't happen on the previous version i was using (i think it was 0.7.something.. whatever comes in ubuntu 10.10). I'm not sure where it's pulling/storing this info...

Any ideas?

Manually? Using Calibre's UI?

Run the Library Maintenance tool (on the little arrow next to the Libry Icon. That will fix the listings for missing (removed formats) and notify you of ones that sneaked in the back door and need to be take back out and brought in the front door (normal ADD)

If you delete them manually, using a file manager and not using calibre's library tools then calibre will not know to update the library. Delete any unwanted formats via calibre's GUI in the edit metadata window.

Yes it did happen on that version and every other version back to at least 0.6.0 or before. You must use calibre's interface to delete unwanted formats or you end up experiencing what you are seeing.

Follow theducks advice to correct your library.

Hello, I have version 0.9.34 and for the life of me I can't find any Maintenance tool or any green arrow. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Thanks.

Edit. Nevermind, found it.

I have a corrupted database, apparently, with a lot of invalid titles. I'd like to delete them, but it takes an eternity to select them all (over 1000). Is there any way to select all of them?
