Hi Anton,an InDesign book file ( *.indb ) does not contain the InDesign documents you see listed at the Book panel when a book file is open. The listed documents are only references to the original InDesign documents. So when you removed all documents from a book file the original documents are not removed from the file system.Do not panic. Just have a look into your file system or your backups. TimeMachine or whatever…Regards, Uwe
