Duplicated Folders

In preparation for my forthcoming iPad, I've coverted a load of books to Epub, put each author into its own directory, and each book into its own sub-directory. When I add the books to Calibre it copies every directory to the library on the hard disk so that I have two of every folder and contents.

Is there a way to prevent this? I've tried deleting the duplicate folders but Calibre recreates them.

No. That's how Calibre works. You have a source book, you Add it to Calibre, and Calibre puts it into Calibre's library. You can then delete your source book or keep it as a backup. Calibre works only with its copy of the book in its own library, and you should never need to go into the folders in that library. When you want a book, either "Save to Disk," "Send to Device" or just read it on your PC with the Calibre built-in viewer.

Thanks for that. I'll delete the original then.
