which files writes calibre to the kindle keyboard?

Hallo,

I use Calibre to manage my ebook-library, but not to manage my readers. So I disabled the plugins for all devices. Accidently I overlooked that there was a new plugin "Kindle 2/3/4/Touch Device Interface" (perhaps after an upgrade of Calibre?) that was not disabled. So Calibre started to work on my Kindle Keyboard after connecting the device. I saw in the file explorer after mounting Calibre that there were some files calibre made on the directory level of the folders "documents, ..." Now I want to know if these files are all Calibre made on an Kindle Keyboard in order to "clean" my reader from the changes Calibre made to it.

Thanks for help!

Calibre makes:
metadata.calibre (a XML list of books found on your device)
and driveinfo.calibre (keeps track ? of what device each installation calibre has seen)
The K$NT does not care if they exist? do you need that file space?

Thank you for the information. Are there any other changes calibre does on the reader?

No, I don't really need the space. But there is no sense in "file-relicts" on a device that are not needed.

What is "K$NT"?
