retrieving calibre library
#1  tponzo 05-31-2020, 01:05 AM

I'm not sure this is correct forum so please redirect if needed. My computer running Windows 7 has died. Can I retrieve my calibre library to a different computer or external drive?
thank you in advance.

In addition to Kovid:

If the (old system) HARD DRIVE is still workable: Remove the drive (seek help if needed) and attach it to the new computer by either installing it inside (If a tower model) or get a USB drive caddy or (bare) HD cloning kit
and move your Library folder and configuration folders to the NEW system HD

DO NOT EVER ATTACH A DRIVE THAT HAS A VIRUS TO A GOOD SYSTEM without major precautions. (I use a Linux boot, then copy just the documents I know to be not infected)
