Unhappy Error message: The file did not exist when this move operation was started

Hi,

since Calibre 0.9.4 I get an error message when trying to change book data like title, author, etc or when trying to convert a book to a different format. I get always the same error:

calibre, version 0.9.5
FEHLER: Nicht abgefangener Fehler: <b>ValueError</b>:The file u'path_to_ebook' did not exist when this move operation was started

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\convert\single.py", line 255, in accept
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\convert\metadata.py", line 232, in commit

File "site-packages\calibre\utils\filenames.py", line 307, in copy_path_to
ValueError: The file u'path_to_ebook' did not exist when this move operation was started

I have no idea how to deal with this error, is there somebody who can help me?

I'm using Calibre 0.9.5 on Windows 7.

Go to Preferences->plugins and disable any third party plugins you have installed, then restart calibre.

Thankyou very much for your reply. Unfortunately that didn't help.

Thankyou again for your kind support.

I tried what you said, but it didn't help. I have a couple of libraries and the error happens in all of them, even in a library with only 6 books.

Then I'm at a loss. The string 'path to book' does not exist in the calibre source code and if you did a library restore, then it should not exist in the library either, so I have no clue where it is coming from.

Ooops, I'm sorry. I wrote "path to book" into the error message. I didn't want to confuse you. Excactly it should read (for example)

calibre, version 0.9.5

Sorry for the confusion, I just wanted to shorten the message a little.

Do you have your calibre library on a network drive? If so, move it off.

Ok, that helped.
But what can I do to use my library on a network drive? It worked with the Calibre versions before 0.9.4. Should I go back to an earlier version? Or will this behaviour be changed in a future release?
Anything else I can do?

Running calibre on networked drives has never been officially supported. http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/faq....rked-drive-nas

I just wanted to chime in and say I've been having the same exact errors recently. I can add a book to calibre, but anytime I edit the metadata and hit 'ok' I get the above error.

I also read the FAQ when I started and decided to give the NAS storage a shot anyway. I have been keeping my database and back up books on my Synology NAS and it has been working wonderfully for the past year. Then around 9.2 or 9.3 I started getting this error. I understand that network file systems are a different beast but at some point this was working for me.

eg. I add a book by other Bob Smith. -> Calibre creates a folder called Bob Smith with my book, the cover and metadata inside it. If I then edit the metadata for this book to say, Smith, Bob -> Calibre gives me the error - BUT - it creates an empty folder called Smith, Bob while leaving the folder Bob Smith. This seems to be new behavior because it used to work fine.

Should I downgrade a few versions? I really have no use for a library that's not on a NAS.

here's the actual error:

calibre, version 0.9.7
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>error</b>3, 'CreateFile', 'The system cannot find the path specified.')

Your NAS is being NASty
and not being (instantly) available all the time.

1) Don't use a NAS.
2) If you do, Don't complain here about filesystem errors The big guy said they were trouble.

Or... keep the database local and use one of the data replication tools to copy it to the NAS for backup purposes.

I for one use Always Sync for that purpose.
