New Exports

If I am reading the "what's new" correctly, the newest version will limit the catalog exports to 1g? And the new exports won't be able to be imported?

Is there a way to opt out of this? If there isn't could someone please let this be a thing because I need this function and I won't update Calbre until I can.

Unless I am reading it wrong.

This is for the export the library, NOT calibre catalogs? Again, still need to be able to export a large libary....

The way that I read the What's New is that the newer versions of calibre will export the library in at most 1GB chunks even if that required splitting a file larger than 1GB. It goes on to say that exports from newer versions will not be importable by older versions. So if you are using the Export/Import functionality, you will not be able to export a library on 7.10 and import it on 3.48. If you are using 7.10 and exporting your library, you will be able to import it on calibre 7.10 or newer. If you are using calibre 6.29 and export your library, you will be able to import it on calibre 7.x.

This has nothing to do with creating a catalogue of your library books from the Convert Books menu.

When exporting the library to a backup, it'll make each chunk no larger than 1 gigabyte, even if the full-text database is bigger than that. If I remember, this is a workaround for some filesystem issues that a user on here (I think Quoth?) was having.

It did always limit to 1G till the FTS was added. That exported in one file which was fine if destination was NTFS, ext2, ext4, exFAT, HPFS etc, but not FAT32 (as it is 4G per file max). My FTS file was 20 GB.

So that's why Kovid quickly made the change. A few things don't work with exFAT, or my 128G USB stick wouldn't have been FAT32!

Ok, so it's also not limiting the size of the library that is to be exported either, just the individual chunks from being more than 1GB.

I can deal with that.

It's more reliable than a simple copy of the library files which sometimes gives complaint of a corrupt database. Export seems faster than import (7000+ titles, many more than one format and FTS database). About 40G byte total.
