The Auto add folder is a flat file location

OTOH Adding books (right click) offers many options. A few include sub-folders

The automatic add folder is watched, not its subdirectories, to keep someone from shooting themselves in the foot (or worse) by pointing the auto-add process to "C:\". That person would regret doing that for quite some time to come, especially if they had checked the checkbox to "Automatically Add Files of All File Types (Not Just eBooks)".

OK. Thanks.

But i have another Problem wit the automatic Import. The first time the Import is working.
After that, if i moved files with a script to the import folder, calibre doesn't import them.
The i restart the Calibre the immport is running.

Is it a BUG?

Regards
Hermann

Hermann:

No, it is not a Calibre bug. Calibre uses Qt for the GUI etc. It also uses the Qt "QFileSystemWatcher" object to monitor changes to the auto-add directory that you specified. At Calibre startup, the auto-add always does its job. However, after Calibre has been running for a while, the watcher object sometimes does not emit a signal telling Calibre that it needs to perform an auto-add, especially if only a single book is placed into the auto-add directory. If you place a few books into your auto-add directory, it usually is sufficient to provoke a response from the watcher.

If you always are moving a single book into that directory, and continue to have this problem, as a workaround you could change your script to always copy a few "dummy" files (not ebooks) along with your "real" books, and then have it later delete your "dummy" files from the auto-add directory. That should tickle the watcher enough to provoke it.
