My books won't stay in collections

Good morning all, I may be missing something here and if I have, please bear with me Smile

I have been a Kindle user for a while now and patiently put my books in collections by using the on screen menu of the Kindle.

However.............my Kindle developed a screen fault and I exchanged it for another one (thankfully still under guarantee)

Before I took it back I backed up everything on my pc, came home, put everything on to my new Kindle only to find that there are no collections and all books are listed individually. A pain when I want to look for a particular author. When the Kindle is hooked up to my pc all my books still show in folders but not in collections on my Kindle.
Is there an easy way to sort my collections apart from creating new collections then going through every book and organising them via the Kindle screen?

I kind of assumed that. as I had my books in collections then made a backup that backup would appear on my new Kindle as it had been on my old one.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer

RE: My books won't stay in collections

Which kindle do you have.
With newer ones there are "cloud collections" and you can just download them.

Question RE: My books won't stay in collections

I have one book, purchased from Amazon, that will not stay in one particular collection. I add it to the collection, and the next day it is no longer in the collection.

This is on a Kindle Paperwhite 2. It shows in the correct collection on my Android Kindle app on two devices, but it will not stay in the correct collection on my Paperwhite, and I cannot figure out why.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
