Question Trying to convert Ebooks from amazon kindle to pdf!

I have taken all the ebooks from that account that I had and downloaded them and then converted them to epub. But I am having a little issue with a few things.

When I convert to epub and save epub to the drive it saves 3 files (EPUB file, JPG file, and OPF document).

I put the (3) files into a new folder and then I name the folder sometimes the name is not exact but I hope that wont be a problem.

Here's what I'm tying to figure out. Can I have them save automatically in there own folders once saved.

If possible please tell me how thank you. I have tried converting them and saving them both in bulk and singles and it still dose not make folders for me.

You can export your books to an own structure if you want, but calibre won't use these files as library. calibre has it's own structure.

Also see ==>> Want to change folder structure or file names in the Calibre library?. In particular "Worldwalker's" perspective.

And calibre has a number of command line tools that operate independently of its library functions, see ==>> The Command Line Interface.

if you convert kindle files that you have imported to calibre, the converted file should be in the same folder as the kindle file in the calibre library structure. You can bulk convert them and then remove files of a specific format from selected books to remove the kindle formats.

What I would suggest is creating a new library, importing batches of the kindle ebooks, updating metadata, covers, etc., then converting to epub. Once that is done, delete the kindle format ebooks and copy/delete the epubs to your main library.

If you want to maintain a file structure for your books outside of the calibre library, you can use save to disk with templates to create the directory/file structure you want. Those books will be outside the calibre library and calibre will not manage them. The structure of the calibre library is fixed and not something the user should attempt to modify. Treat it as a black box that you can extract files and information from.

An often overlooked feature in calibre is using a directory as device. Once you have create the matching you can simply use this as instrument to track other structures as well. It isn't the original use case for this feature, but with a little creativity an user can take this as an additional instrument for creating his own universe.
Isn't as elegant as to use calibre as it is , but in combination of what @DNSB has suggested you can come closer to these kind of manual management (and this user needs to organize this on one's own hook, because this use case is outside calibre's responsibility).
