Remove Books Button

Hi

Would be grateful for any guidance. I am converting some of the drm free books in epub to mobi. I then remove the epub version form my library.

I have on a few occassions hit the big remove button instead of the small drop down arrow at the side (to select the delete by format option) with the consequnce of deleting all my books and having to start again.

Is there any way of getting a warning prompt or any other suggestions please

How do you remove only the ePub version from the library? I converted all my mobi books to ePub and would like to remove only the ePub version, but keep the mobi format of each book.

Select all books you want to do that for, right-click, Remove Books -> 'Remove all formats, except...' or 'Remove Specific Format'.
