Library path wrong - how to edit

I keep a few different libraries in Calibre (fiction, non-fiction, etc). Today I tried to copy a book from non-fiction to fiction and I couldn't do it. Error says path to fiction is gone. Calibre is using an old path. I keep all my books in Dropbox. How can I edit the incorrect path ???

Thanks.
Barbara

2 steps
1)remove the old entry in the quick switch list. (this does not delete any library,only the link ) :
Click the Library Icon:Remove Librarythe bad one)

2)Add (the correct) Library:
Click the Library Icon: Create/Switch:Use Existing:<navigate to it>

BTW lost linkage can happen on/because of removable drives.

You can reserve a (pick an unique upper) letter for each removable drive. That letter will then be reused each connection, regardless of which port used
