Question Search and Save ONLY Book List

Hello, All.

I have some 50,000 ebooks of various formats. What I'd like to do is have Calibre search my book folders and ONLY save a list of the books I have and NOT copy the files / data to a folder in the Calibre library.

Can this be done?

Thanks, in advance, for your help!!

No, it can't be done.

You can let Calibre add a portion of the books and then remove the formats, so only the metadata remains in the Calibre database. Then repeat with the next batch.
