Help!

With the most recent upgrade to Logos 6 and a decent sized add-on of resources for myself, my MicroSD card filled up during the indexing process. Now the program won't run without shutting down because there is not enough free space to index.

I need to free up enough space on my MicroSD so that it will finish indexing and I can use my tablet at Bible Study tonight. Please help, I am not very tech savvy. My thoughts:

There has never been anything on the microSD except Logos, my resources etc.

1. Is there something like a disk defrag or something that I can run that will free up space?

2. Can I "share" the weight of the program with the tablet's hard drive somehow?

3. Can I delete some resources and just choose to not download them in the future? What would be the easiest way to do that and make sure I get just a few of the biggest resources?

My tablet is not my primary working version of the software, but I would like to have it as close to the working software that I use on my desktop as possible.

Any help and advice much appreciated!

NOT on a SD card.

Sorry I don't have an answer. I do , However, have a couple questions. Which package did you get? Is your card 64 GB?

I too have limited space on my tablet. ... Thanks

I went for the Big Kahuna Collector's Edition on top of plenty of resources from L5. Everything is on my desktop no problem, but the MicroSD is FULL. It is indeed a 64 GB.

Delete your WebCache directory, esp if you've viewed any videos in Logos.

Also, Someone will have to confirm this, but it's my understanding that Logos uses extra space when appending to an index, so a possible (drastic), solution might be to delete the indices and let Logos index from scratch. I am not at all sure of that so I would wait confirmation from someone more knowledgeable.

Thanks for the help! Sorry to be dense, but how do I go about each of these tasks? Where are the files stored? I will only use indices deletion as a last resort.

Stick out tongue $10,000 worth of resources on a $200 machine. What's wrong with this picture? Stick out tongue

Hehe, point taken. I'm eventually going to get a Surface Pro, but for now this has been a great alternate solution for me. As I said, it's not my primary machine.

No other ideas from the smart technical folks?

That is correct.

If your index is 3GB, Logos will need 4GB (or more) free space to build the new index before it replaces the existing one. If you run "rebuild indexes" in the command box, all existing indexes will be deleted first (which will stop Search from working) before reindexing takes place. This will use the space that was just freed up.

I concur. I have quite a stable of "beasts of burden". The Venue 8 is the best bang for the buck. .... EVER !

This sounds like my answer, then. Although it is an indicator that I am pretty much at the end of my resource limit for my MicroSD. Time to slow down! :)

Disk defrag doesn't give you any free space - it actually requires a fair amount of free space to work (OK for microSD but not SSD).

Chasing your tail here as it will affect your desktop resources.

There is a technical solution as you could put your resources on the HD. You need to do this ASAP as reindexing per Bradley's suggestion may not be sufficient. If this is too technical then get a 128 GB microSD card, format it as NTFS, and transfer everything to that card (the desktop may help with all this).
