[IOS] Refresh of available libraries on OneDrive

Hello,
I use both versions of Calibre Companion (Ios and Android). I'm storing my calibre libraries on OneDrive. I have added a few libraries to OneDrive three days ago. I can see and access them with the android version. But I'm unable to get a refreshed list on the Ios app. I only get the libraries known before my update. I have tried every option available to force a reload of the list short of uninstalling the app.
Am i doing something wrong ? Or is it a bug ?
Thanks.
Jean-Christophe

Hello Jean-Christophe,

It seems this is a bug in OneDrive actually. The way the iOS app finds libraries is to search your drive for files called "metadata.db". I've just added a 2nd library to my OneDrive, and as you reported, CC couldn't find it. However, if I log in and search OneDrive via their website, it still only reports one file called "metadata.db", despite there actually being two.

So... this means OneDrive's searching assumes there will only ever be one file with a certain name. Unless there's some way to fix that with OneDrive there's no way for CC to know that the other libraries exist.

Sorry!

I'm running the latest Calibre Companion and it's not finding my library in OneDrive. As far as I know, there's only one metadata.db in OneDrive, but CC isn't finding it at all.

Oddly, if I use Dropbox, CC works fine, but unfortunately I'm migrating away from Dropbox.
