Calibre just kinda... forgot about a bunch of books that I had added to the library years ago?? All the files have been sitting there in the folder, but the calibre library dB file just believes they don't exist.

So now I have to re-import my entire library and handle the duplicates manually! Yay!


Update on the calibre library problem:
I ran an import of my whole calibre folder, ignored duplicate entries, and all of the books that were forgotten got added back in!

I then still had the old files in the folder, so I ran a Check Library under Library Maintenance, selected all the books that didn't have database entries, and deleted them out after checking and making extra sure the re-import had added them again. 👍
