Copy calibre and files before hard disc change
My hard drive is about to fail on my lap top. I have over 5000 books of which I have changed authors names the right way around, changed tags,pasted missing summaries from the net and if the book is in a series have painstakingly numbered them in the correct series. ( About 500 titles )
I have all the books backed up. How do I back up calibre and all series info to then put onto a new hard drive.

You can also copy your library to Dropbox. Makes it easy when you get a new computer.

If you're using Vista or Windows 7 you could create a Symbolic Link to DropBox folder higher up the tree and then point Calibre at the Symbolic Link
If your using XP-SP2/3 you could create a Junction to the DropBox folder higher up the tree and then point Calibre at the Junction
Junctions on pre Service Pack 2 XP are tricky regarding deletions.
IMO on Vista, W7 and W8 Junctions are best avoided. They're a poor mans symlink, and will probably be deprecated to device mounts points only, maybe in W9 if they haven't done it in W8.
