Exclamation Covers not added

Hello,
my version of calibre is 0.6.54.
I have the following problem: I have selected "Read Metadata only from filename". After having added about 500 ebooks I have discovered that COVERS have not been added.
Is there a way to tell Calibre to Extract the COVERS from the selected books ? This would help a lot as I have already deleted the original directory and can't add them again.

Not in bulk you have to do it one by one via the edit meta information dialog

If you save your books to disk it should save a copy of the cover seperately in the same folder as a .jpg unless you have that option unchecked

The cover has to exist in Calibre before Calibre will save them to disk.

Kovid, the creator of Calibre stated above that under the circumstances presented the only solution was one book at a time via the edit meta information dialog.

I am using an user interface automator to get the covers.

However I have a feature request: could you add an option to read metadata from filenames and covers from the book ?
