How to force CC to scan for locally stored books

I have Calibre on my laptop (where I do al the maintenance of the Calibre library). When traveling I use a Windows tablet and an Android phone to read books. I need to be able to read when offline (airplane, areas with no internet, ...)

I moved the Calibre library to Onedrive and now I have all the books available on my tablet. Perfect.

On my phone I installed Foldersync to have all books on my phone and to sync the changes when necessary.

CC however does not see those books. How should I set the CC settings to force CC to recognize the locally stored books?

Thanks

Make sure Foldersync also syncs metadata.db. That's what CC needs.
