Kobo takes forever to talk to Calibre
I have a regular Kobo reader, and I find that when I hook it up to my computer and run Calibre it takes over ten minutes to complete "Get list of books on device". I do have a lot of books on it, but it still shouldn't be taking like ten minutes.

I had that happen with a particular version but once I updated the issue went away. What version of Calibre are you running?

Running welcome wizard setting Kobo as my reader in Calibre solves this problem for me.

If you have a lot of books and little free space, the indexing on your storage may be having trouble reading them.
Are the books saved to the Kobo or the SD card? Kobo: I'd copy them all off, factory reset, and copy them back. SD card: I'd connect the card to the computer and defrag, or copy books off, reformat, and restore.
Just a suggestion ...

I hate to say I have NEVER had a corruption using Calibre and the Touch! Also I do not use an SD card....

I have never had a Db corruption from using Calibre with the Touch either.
I have though had one with a "bad" book (in my case a public domain work) that created a severe double tap/screen responsiveness problem until it was removed. Once it was removed, there was a minor (but still annoying) residual problem with some books so I reset my device. I should have, btw, known that the book was going to be a problem because the file size was ridiculously large. Something was going on there.
All my sideloaded books are on the SD card.
People use their readers in all sorts of ways. I usually add one book at a time, as I generally buy one book at a time. When a problem exists, it is therefore pretty easy to know if it is likely to be a particular book that started it. People who load large numbers of books onto their devices simultaneously have a harder time figuring that part out.
