Calibre After Crash

my whole pc was taken down by windows and I've managed to save much of the data in the original condition, C drive, libraries, etc.

after a reinstall of calibre can I just simply overlay all the files from my root drive that exist and things will be back where it was before windows took me down? please say yes (though it's probably no). this is more important to me than almost anything else.

setting everything up again the way it was and I liked it would be a monumental task and I'm coming up on my busy season. I don't mind reinstalling plugins, but customizations, menus, etc. would be a real pain.

tia!

You have to copy over the configuration folder. Usually it's located at User/App Data/Roaming. Copy the entire folder named "calibre" to the same location.

should I copy the calibre installation folder over too or just the configuration folder? I would be happier with my files the way they were before the crash. would it hurt anything?

eta - I don't think I need to. looks like everything is still there just as it was. thanks.
