Restoring database failed

It all started when I wanted to increased my usb storage size - my ebooks were stored on a 16gb memory stick and I wanted to change this to a 32gb stick. (I had done this previously from an 8gb to a 16bg with no problem).

For some reason I could not transfer the files across.

I thought it was time also to install the most up to date version of calibre (0.8.43).

Last night I had the new version working and had added just over 500 books to the database. This morning I tried to start Calibre and got this message -

Failed: Restoring database failed

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\library\", line 103, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\library\", line 113, in scan_library
File "", line 294, in walk
File "", line 294, in walk (etc)

Does any one have any ideas what I can do to get calibre running again?
