Question How to recover large corrupted calibre library

Hello guys.
I am trying to recover over 1 TB of a corrupted library, had 3 attemps with no success,
after a own column added the library crushed....

Is there a way to keep the library and create new metada without creating new list of
books...the issue is I have no more room from a new one....
Thanks in advance.

LOOK (only) in various Authors (books) Title folder. There are files cover and metadata. Look at the date_modified (in windows explorer, if you hover, the balloon help will show details)

If these dats appear to be BEFORE the disaster, ther is a very good chance the metadata backup survived.
On the Library icon: Library maintenance: Restore database (calibre reads each one of these files and rebuilds the spreadsheet )
