Is it possible to separate out the Mobi and epub files?

I've routinely been doing double conversion - taking an ebook and then converting the original and then making (for example) a mobi file. That means I have three file formats for one title - original, epub, and mobi.

However, my calibre library is now overly large - very large, indeed. Plus, I rarely access my mobi files, although that will assuredly change when I get my Kindle, which is currently awaiting my arrival to the U.S.


MY QUESTION:


Is there a way to elegantly separate all the mobi files from the epub files, and then to transfer those mobi files onto a duplicately-structured calibre database?
