Public bug reported:

I've had to restore the Calibre database because it was corrupt. Running
a check afterwards, I found that all jpg and gif files in the book
directories were ignored in the restore (other non-book file types like
xlsx were not ignored). I often add alternative covers to Calibre, for
example of the print version that I also own. I add them properly with
the Calibre Add function, not just put them in the directory with
Explorer, so originally Calibre knew about them and handled them as I
expected (for example keeps them when I change the book title). Is there
any way to tell restore to include these types (excluding cover.jpg),
maybe by defining them in Calibre as user defined types? I don't feel
like re-adding hundreds of files by hand, especially since April 2018 I
frequently get the blue screen of death. I reckon this is not the last
time I will have to restore the database. I used Calibre 3.20 [64 bit]
in Windows 10 Home version 1803.
