Is there any way to restrict/select which of my Logos resources are downloaded? My Logos resouces library is enormous. I'm happy to have the whole lot downloaded to my laptop but my Windows tablet doesn't have much memory so I'd like to restrict/choose which resorces are downloaded to the device and which are only available when online - in the same way you can when using the Android app. Logos don't seem to have a mobile app equivalent for Windows tablets/mobiles so is there some way of preventing all the resources automatically downloading if I install the standard Logos Windows software?

Thanks,

Pauline

It's an option frequently requested and so far ignored by FaithLife.

A work-around is described at length in this thread: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/125321.aspx 

I've been running this way for a while (though I'm reconsidering as my library has grown quite a bit since then.) It works okay; keep in mind that if you do it, you won't be able to update the software without redoing the procedure as any download will include whatever resources you own that are missing from the tablet install.

Do also try the web app, if you have access to it as a Logos Now subscriber: http://app.logos.com/ 

The web app's quite a bit better than it was, though it still doesn't quite meet my needs, and of course it's not helpful if you need an offline option.

Stable software versions can be updated by manually installing newer release => https://www.logos.com/install

Thread => Logos on USB flash iii discussion includes an unsupported (but usable) method of relocating Resources folder to USB or SD Card.
