My iMac mid 2012 shows having Logos4.dmg in my downloads folder (can't delete it) But I am running Logos 5 I deleted the Logos 4 icon as it no longer worked. I checked my HD and this is taking up 21.8GB ! Is this Logos 4 still on my Mac while I am running Logos 5? I would like to restore this extra space since it is not using it. Second, if it is using it why is it still in the downloads folder?

Thanks,

Dennis

Are you sure you didn't delete your L4 resource folder? Have you tried restarting your computer?

Probably a dumb question but is this disk image being opened by finder (does is show up in the sidebar).?

The file name Logos4.dmg rings a bell (or two). Personally had created a Logos4.dmg file in a Downloads folder while investigating case insensitive file system issues in some Logos 4 Mac Alpha pre-releases almost 3 years ago and showed Time Machine exclusion => http://community.logos.com/forums/p/17881/134532.aspx#134532  Used hdiutil to attach Logos4.dmg file as ~/Library/Application Support/Logos4 (effectively mounted disk image as my Logos4 folder).   Many months ago ran out of space in Logos4.dmg while indexing so closed Logos 4 Mac, used hdiutil to detach Logos4.dmg, opened Logos4.dmg file, copied contents into ~/Library/Application Support/Logos4 then ejected Logos4.dmg and moved Logos4.dmg to trash.  Launched Logos 4 Mac to complete indexing since now had adequate free space.

Noticed hdiutil man page includes info verb => https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Darwin/Reference/Manpages/man1/hdiutil.1.html

Currently have Logos4 folder on a different partition and am using a symbolic link.

Note: Logos 4 Mac disk image name for the application bundle is Logos4Mac.dmg, which has a size up to 122 MB.
