Question Regenerate Covers

Hi,
I appear to have lost over 3/4 of my eBook covers from Calibre.
Any new books I add I get a cover.
I realise that I can probably download a cover for each book individually but is there a way of regenerating the missing covers as a batch automated process?
Thanks as always,
jB

Where did the covers come from originally? And how did you lose them?

The golden rule is - don't add, change, delete or rename anything in the library folder or Author and Books sub-folders directly.

If they are in the ebook format files you could recover them from there, select a couple of Books, press E, then in the Change covers section (towards the bottom of dialogue), press the Set from e-book files radio button and click OK.
