What do you tech savvy users do to mitigate the penchant Logos has to consume precious hard drive space? 

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Hi Beloved,

I have two thoughts here:

1) If you watch videos in Logos, understand that they are downloaded to the Web Cache folder in your Logos resource folder. Being videos, they can chew up a lot of disk space. You can periodically delete everything in the Web Cache folder to clear up space.

2) Although I have a big enough drive right now, my theory is to keep my Logos Resources on my main drive for performance reasons. I would move other space-hogging things, like shows and movies, to a secondary drive. In other words, I would find more space for Logos rather than try and make Logos smaller.

How much space are you working with?

Logos doesn't consume; it's usually the owner that likes making their Library bigger and biggerBig Smile

The WebCache has been mentioned, but the Concordance folder can become large with resource files; which can be deleted individually.

If you are a Connect subscriber, then it's worthwhile to re-index (Rebuild Index) every 12 months because the deleted monthly review resources remain in the Index (ditto for hidden resources). When 7.19 is released, you can Rebuild Bible Index as that will save some space.

You've got me pegged right!

Thanks for your suggestions.

I alway type delete unlicensed resources in the command line to remove past preview books that are no longer licensed.

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Logos\Data\random\WebCache

If you have lots of downloaded videos, the webcache is a good candidate for moving to a bigger drive using a symbolic link. It's just about the only meaningful way of reducing the footprint of your Logos installation.
