Moving library location

I am moving my 4 Calibre libraries from Dropbox to Google Drive. I use a cloud drive so I may access it from my desktop and laptop. I moved the files on my desktop. All the new library locations show up. But when I try to move a book from one library to another I get error message. Can't find library. Don't know how to fix that.

Also any tips in general about moving your Calibre library location will be appreciated. I still have to move the files on my laptop so they can find the new library locations.

Thanks.
Barbara

Don't use Google Drive!

There are issues with the names used by calibre and how GDrive handles them.

I have lost the link, but simply GD mangles the folder naming, by removing the index numbers in the ( ) on the title folders.

Those are part of the tie to the DB record

Thank you very much. I have recovered my libraries and moved them back to Dropbox. Now I either have to pay to use Dropbox (my bonus GB's are expiring) or try another cloud storage solution.

I had a bad afternoon until I got this worked out!!

Most of the other cloud solutions seem to work fine with Calibre. The one that seems to be giving the most generous allowances at the moment is copy.com.
