Trace back error messages

I am having trouble moving my Calibre library. My laptop died so I connected the hard drive running Windows 7 to my new laptop running windows 10. When I try to copy my library I get the following error message. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

calibre, version 4.3.0
ERROR: Failed: Failed to export data. Click "Show Details" for more information.

That location is the Program, not the Library

BUT I see strangeness... LOTS

the x86 part says 32bit program...
BUT a Library is NOT a program, nor kept there.
BUT 'Calibre Book Hold' is not part of the program, nor standard Library name.
The part-0001.calibre-data' IS a piece of an EXPORTED Library (part of an Library image . there should have been other chunks there also).

If this HD has the actual library, locate that (search the disk for metadata.db) THAT FOLDER is a Library.
Usu it in place or MOVE THE FOLDER to a new home.
Switch/Create: Use Existing is how to direct Calibre to any existing Library (you can have many)

The FOLDER name is the Library name. You can change that as part of the move, you will just need to use the Switch/Create to point at its new name
