Calibre warning

Would it be possible to have a warning "Are you sure you want to delete this library?" It's been already twice so far that I deleted a library instead of rename it.

Thanks in advance!

The delete option in Calibre does not delete the physical library - just removes it from the quick switch list.

Maybe I'm missing something, but these surely isn't any trace of it left, in the quick switch or in the long list of libraries...

Correct. You have deleted Calibre's memory of that libraries existence. However it is still physically present on is so that you can elect to find it by browsing for it.

Right!
You can reattach to the old library using 'Create/Switch'

When you Deleted, you got a message that you would need to use the OS file manager to remove the physical (library) folders

I see. Thanks everyone for your help! (Though a warning message would still be nice... )

I don't see where a warning message is needed or desired. The label says "remove library" and the attached image clarifies what happened. Since nothing is deleted why would you need a warning?
