My computer has a C and a D drive.  My C drive is nearly full.  With the recent download of new books I get a message that "indexing has stopped" due to insufficient memory.  The message suggests I free up some space--easy to say but hard to do.  I wonder if I can just move the entire kit and kaboodle to the other drive?!

Garrett - unrelated to your question, but I have always found that computers work best when the HD has room to breathe. In my opinion, it is best to keep the HD at under 60% full.

You can move all of it. You'll need to reinstall onto the D: drive and you can use the instructions for loading Logos onto multiple computers found here (use Method 2):

Hopefully, you understand that you can use Logos4 on C: drive as the backup for Method 2 (above). After reinstalling you can safely delete the Logos4 folder on C:, and then make even more space available on that drive for the Windows System to operate efficiently.

Well, all of this is basically outside my area of expertise!  Thanks for all the suggestions.  I plan on trying to make the switch in a day or so.

BTW, for the record, I just checked: my C drive capacity is 100GB and I have 616MB of free space remaining.  I guess that's not good...

Make the move and free up space as soon as possible Garrett. You are setting up for a crash.

To clarify what I said and ensure you have a backup:-

  • Rename the \Logos4 folder on C: drive eg. to \oldLogos4 (this is your backup)
  • Uninstall Logos Bible Software 4 in Control Panel > Programs and Features
  • Install using Method 2 with the folders in \oldLogos4 (just enter D:\ as the install location)
  • when it is working on D: drive you can remove \oldLogos4 on C:

You should have at least 10 GB free after the steps above, but you need to have a total of 20-25 GB free for Windows to work efficiently. Start by emptying your Recycle Bin.

Aloha and good evening.

As part of my job, I assess computer networks aboard Naval vessels.  During the assessment, one of the things I check for is a minimum of 20% free disk space and less than 10% fragmentation on servers.

In the Method 2 instructions on the Wiki is the line:

     enter scan <path to backup resources> in the Command box

What does "path to backup resources" refer to?

Thanks

The last line of Method 2 (under Note)  states

<path to backup resources> -> ...\Logos4\Data\randomId\ResourceManager\Resources

For your backup on C: the full path is C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\oldLogos4\Data\randomId\ResourceManager\Resources, assuming you renamed the \Logos4 folder to \oldLogos4 as I suggested. The command you enter in the Command box is:-

scan C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\oldLogos4\Data\randomId\ResourceManager\Resources

(substitute the actual values for username and  randomId).

Thanks Dave - after replacing my 64g ssd with a 128, and transferring Logos back to my C drive (the ssd) Logos is much more responsive (especially notes) 

 

Thanks to all for the help with this project.
