New computer, which data files to transfer?

My old computer crashed. I have the files in my back-up drive and now have a new computer. I have downloaded the Calibre program to the new computer but want to know which data files have my e-books so I can transfer those in. Help!

The Entire Library folder (from old computer)
Calibre should NOT be running <<<

If you made a backup of your 'Calibre configuration Folder', replace that also.
Note that if your Library path is different than your old computer, you will need to use the arrow next to the Library icon and (create/)switch to the new location.
