Unhappy Issues with Library after folder move

Hi, first time here, so unsure if this is the right location to post this.

I recently got a NAS device and moved all my books to the device and pointed Calibre at it.

The device is accessible from my computer with full privileges and I can read/write/create, etc. I've even started Calibre with Admin privileges.

However, I am getting an issue when I perform any action on the new database. For example, if I try and add a new book, i get this error (see below). It actually does add the book, but this issue keeps coming up. If I convert, it does the convert, but then I get the same error popping up.

I've tried library maintenance and fixed any issues known, but no joy.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks, J

calibre, version 4.8.0
