Question Catalog creation error

Hola!

Every month I create mobi, epub, and csv catalogs from my 3 main libraries. This had been going well (as long as the tags were kept in reasonable shape, LoL) up through Feb 1, my last successful batch.

On March 1 I tried to create new catalogs but get the following error:

RuntimeError: File name in directory "72c9dc43-8073-49f4-89d-4c15-a8e9-b45c669d301f-0" and header "72c9dc43-8073-49f4-89df-be4d07f60082-0x71157126" differ.

I get this exact error regardless of which library I try to create a catalog for.
I copied 100 titles from a library (approx 12,000 titles) into a blank library and tried to create a catalog. Same, exact error message whether I try mobi or epub catalogs. CSV catalog works ok, of course.

I always install the latest version of Calibre when it is available, so am currently V1.27 x64. I have made no known changes to my libraries, and the tags are squeeky clean in this library. I ran the library maintenance checks and those are clean as well.

I am stuck!

Thanks for any pointers/tips to resolve this!

It sounds like the catalog thumbnail cache file is corrupted. Try posting the full error message by clicking show details on the error message, that way we can be sure.

Yeah, the cache file is corrupted. Search your computer for thumbs.zip and delete it, or run this command in a command prompt to delete it automatically.

Code:
calibre-debug -c "from calibre.constants import cache_dir; import os; os.remove(os.path.join(cache_dir(), 'catalog', 'thumbs.zip'))"

That did the trick. Thank you!
