Where is my library?

In fact, I have several libraries, one for fiction, one for reference books, one for comics etc... dotted around my various drives.

But I can't work out, in Calibre, how to find out what physical directory my current library is pointing to... it must be a simple task and so I am being dim. Please put me out of my misery and tell me how I do this!

Thanks

Bill

One way is to select the drop down arrow besides the books icon at the top, select "switch/create library" and the current location is shown at the top.

Lots of ways

When viewing a Library: Tapping the 'O' key will open the file browser to the location of the file (inside the Library). Remember: Never change/delete a file or folder name this way. (This location will also show if you hover over the Path: 'click to open' in the details (optional) /Information panels

To find All Libraries

Use the OS Search: metadata.db will be in each main folder
