Remove "*.original_epub" files from Calibre library

I have many "*.original_epub" files in my Calibre library.

How/when were they created?

What is a safe way to remove them?

Thanks,

CJ

Calibre creates them (option to turn that off in tweaks) when you convert from-> to the same format, Use the Editor

To remove ANY format, use ONLY Calibre to do so.

In the Tag Browser: Formats: <Select a original_*>

Now Select all (of the answers) in the spreadsheet: right click: Remove files of a SPECIFIC FORMAT:<the format>

Jolly good! Since I had over 3,000 of those, you just saved me c. 3G of storage... and a lot of time & bandwidth when I upload my backups to the cloud.

Thanks for quick reply!

You could just avoid making them in the first place. See the tweaks within calibre preferences.

Preferences|Advanced|Tweaks.

Quote:
#: Save original file when converting/polishing from same format to same format
# When calibre does a conversion from the same format to the same format, for
# example, from EPUB to EPUB, the original file is saved, so that in case the
# conversion is poor, you can tweak the settings and run it again. By setting
# this to False you can prevent calibre from saving the original file.
# Similarly, by setting save_original_format_when_polishing to False you can
# prevent calibre from saving the original file when polishing.
save_original_format = True
save_original_format_when_polishing = True
