The Calibre Library and Dropbox

I have Calibre on several different computers and I keep the Calibre Library folder in my Dropbox so that whenever the Library is updated on one computer it is updated on all of them. I just bought another computer which I will be bringing with me while I am away from home for the next little while.

I installed Calibre on it and I tried to use the Calibre Book Library (that's its name in my Dropbox) as the place where Calibre will read what I have. It refused to accept that location saying that the folder was already full, and created another folder in the dropbox called Calibre Library. If I put all the content of Calibre Book Library into Calibre Library, all is well, but I now am doubling up the limited space I have in Dropbox for the same information.

I cannot seem to force Calibre to accept the Calibre Book Library that is in the Dropbox as the default location.

Any suggestsions about what I can do about this? Thanks very much.

Make sure you have "use the previously existing library at the new location" button selected in the "switch/create library" window.

Ohhhhh!!!!! Just found that button now. Never knew it existed. You live and learn and along the way you lose a lot of time making mistakes!

Thanks for this information.
