But that's the thing! I literally just did it the way I always have. Press A in calibre, highlight all of the pdfs, hit enter, it loads and then I add my tags and change the names and that's it.

I didn't drag and drop them via my computer, and they were actually there until I shut down. I even took screenshots of them in the website view to show a friend that I had added a bunch of papers and magazines to catch up on over summer break:




So I know they were in calibre and everything was hunky dory. I even read a few on my tablet using the content server to grab them.

But then I shut down calibre... walked away for a few hours, and when I reopened it... they weren't there! Thats when I ran the library maintenance and it showed the errors, ran the restore database and that seems to have added them back.

Those were the exact ones I got the errors on and were missing:

Restore database brought them back so it wasn't that I added them wrong, or else restore wouldn't have worked.

So... should I revert to an older version of calibre? Is this something i need to worry about? Like I said, no cloud, no nas, simply pressed A, saw them in the calibre window, changed the titles and stuff, viewed them, grabbed them onto my tablet later, and that's it.

I have about 500 more docs and stuff to add, but I'm nervous to do so now.
