Best way to automatically add a lot of books
I'm new to Calibre and I've been trying to add a just under 11.000 books to the library. All these books are in 1 single folder and there are doubles.
I've tried to copy them in groups of 1000 pieces to the automatic add folder, Calibre adds some books but then stops. Leaving it alone for hours or rebooting does not help, not even 1 book gets added.
I've tried it with add books from 1 folder, but after a while Calibre stops working and no book are added to the library folder.
What is the best way to add all these books without adding them one by one?

You can set up an 'Auto-Add' folder.
Then drop 20-40 copies (it deletes from the folder as it adds) into it at at a time.This way some housekeeping (garbage cleanup) gets done.
You might get away with more...
Why risk a crash and lose all work

From the release notes:
Never crash when reading metadata from PDF files (reading now always happens in a worker process)
