Calibre alternative for Windows

Is there an alternative for Calibre for book management for Windows. I have over 12k in books and it's becoming time consuming to manage them

Why not use Calibre?

It's just time consuming trying to fix metadata lol

And you think any other solution would be any easier?

Calibre uses the Metadata found IN THE BOOK. (mostly DC flagged)
An alternate, is from the filename, but that is limited to basics: Title, Author, Series IF..
You chose the correct template

Click on the book, press Ctrl+D and Calibre goes to the Internet and searches for the metadata and cover.

There are LOTS of options, depending on the source book. You can get initial metadata from filename or from file itself.

There is no program even approaching the number of options, tools, features and cool tricks that Calibre has. Also look for plugins for further functionality.

What part of managing them is time consuming?
