Calibre won't start!


All of a sudden Calibre won't start. The picture of the books comes up and that is it.

Before I reinstall it I'm checking for the best way to fix it without losing all my current information.

Computer is having hiccups starting as well. All in one day.

Would appreciate feedback taking into account I am not technically savvy.

Regards
Lyn

Please use the forums correctly. Calibre questions belong in the Calibre forum. I'm moving this thread there.

Whatever you end up doing, be sure to make a backup of your Calibre database. It's just a folder (with subfolders) named "Calibre Library" or similar. Mine is in "My Documents", but yours will be wherever you put it.

ETA: I was also going to say there is a Calibre subform, but HarryT beat me to it, as it were

Red face It fixed itself

Sorry Harry and thanks rogue librarian. It's working again but there are goblins in the works. I restarted the computer 5 times and then it worked. I have an external hard drive which automatically backs up everything ( I hope)

Thems' real scary words.

You should learn how to routinely TEST your backups to be sure :
1) They work at all (I can't remember how many time I have hear 'I have yesterdays backup' only to find it a)unusable b)the files needed were not on the schedule. )
2)Frequently review the LIST OF items being scheduled. New programs Data folders may not get added automatically.
3)Have the Backup Leave the (daily) LOG on the screen for you to glance at: Look for errors, locked files that can't be backed up. Any issue that blocks a complete backup. Fix (Might require a program to be closed) the Issue and Force those to be backed up NOW.
