Default location on device?

Is it possible to set the location that i want claibre to send books to? And is it possible to have claibre only search that particular folder (same setting)?

In other words, I would like to use the send to device option, however each time it searches my entire card (get list of books on device). This takes up to 30+ minutes before it even starts the send process. I would like to be able to set the default folder and restrict the "get list of books on device" search to the same folder if possible.


Thanks
Tom

Once it completes, it is fast in the future.
JUST don't remove the 2 files in the root with calibre in their name

OTOH some device drivers allow a Literal part of the path (but the initial scan must complete) eg. \mybooks\{author_sort}\{title}

Right click on the device and choose configure this device. There you can control what folders are scanned (atleast for MTP based devices, which are very slow to scan).
