Portable library

I exported all my information to a thumb drive. then installed the portable installation of Calibre. But it won't import the information. Any ideas?

@rsrupert - so, when "it won't import the information" does it emit an error message - if so please post the message here.

I had a feeling that was the case - that the import/export feature is not available in calibre portable - ideally it shouldn't even have the import/export item in the drop/down, but I see it is.
  • Close all instances of calibre.
  • Copy your existing libraries into the Calibre Portable folder, and copy the contents of \Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\calibre into Calibre Portable\Calibre Settings.
  • Start calibre-portable and use Library->Switch create to hook the libraries you just copied.
