Name of Explorer Folders

Please help my OCD. When I import books into Calibre, the folders imported to Windows have the following:

Calibre Documents\author\BookTitle_ (#)

The _(#) is aggravating me. How do I get rid of that?

Thanks.

Finally, the reason there are numbers at the end of every title folder, is for robustness. That number is the id number of the book record in the calibre database. The presence of the number allows you to have multiple records with the same title and author names. It is also part of what allows calibre to magically regenerate the database with all metadata if the database file gets corrupted. Given that calibre’s mission is to get you to stop storing metadata in filenames and stop using the filesystem to find things, the increased robustness afforded by the id numbers is well worth the uglier folder names.

You don't. It's part of the directory/file structure of the Calibre library,

You can't. It's there by design -- see the referenced sticky. Think of the Calibre library folder as a black box which Calibre manages and accesses. You don't even want to look inside -- read the virtual signs "NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE!" and "OPENING THIS DIRECTORY WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY".
