Question Export/Import all Calibre data - import error

I used the function export all Calibre data on my MacBook Pro (using Calibre 2.78) I then tried to import the data on a Windows 10 laptop (using Calibre 2.79.1). I then got the following error message: "The folder D:\Calibre Export Calibre Library Lissy de Poel 13-02-2017 is not valid:The exported deta in ._par-0001.calibre-data is not valid, version (469769983) is higher than the maximum supported version. You might need to upgrade Calibre first". The same problem occurs on export/import using Calibre 2.78 on both computers.

Anybody have a solution?

Regards,

Ian

That version number indicates a corrupted export as there is no such version. Try doing the export again and remember to copy the enite export folder with all its files intact.

Error remains

I created a new library folder and exported the files. I then created a test library and tried to import the exported files. Got the same error message. Details: calibre, version 2.79.1
ERROR: Not valid: The folder /Users/ianbrown/Dropbox/Ian Data/Data Current/(e)Books/Calibre Test Library is not valid: No exported data found in: /Users/ianbrown/Dropbox/Ian Data/Data Current/(e)Books/Calibre Test Library

Do not use dropbox as the export or import folder, export to a local folder on the Mac, copy that to dropbox, then copy from dropbox to a local folder on Window pc, then import thar folder into calibre.

Export/Import problem solved

Beenie,

Thanks a lot. I exported my Calibre library as you suggested to a folder that is not in my dropbox folder. I then used this file import on my Windows laptop. Worked fine.

Take care,

Ian

Ian, Dropbox anomolies apply to anything you do in calibre, conversions, metadata updates etc... Always pause sync when you do anything with calibre and you should be fine.
