I deleted my database file completely (after backing up) and it rebuilt with no problems. Registration etc seems to be stored outside the database, I didn't even have to renter date and time information.

Selectivly Deleting free books From Kobo reader

I have found the latest version of Calibre (version 7.5.4) will delete any of the "100 free" books. Calibre recognizes when the device is connected and will show all the books on the reader when you select the reader Icon at the top of the program. Is shows the 100 free books. just delete the ones you don't want. It's that simple.

But remember... expect to see more come back when you use the WiFi connection or sync with Kobo Desktop.

was possibly thinking of getting the touch to use in the summer along with my vox

if it is so short of memory that we need to delete files manually from it I might not bother

delting multiple books

Hi i am new to Kobo.

I just registered my kobo and have bought and downloaded my first book.
.

I want to delete the 100 free books that come with kobo. i have started deleting it manually but this is going to take me a long time. Is there an easier way to delete the 100 free books?

I have the kobo reader with the navigation pad, and i use a usb cable to connect to my pc

anyone help?

thanks in advance
