Is it possible to move the Resource files located from their current locationsto a different location (like say a second hard drive and/or data partition) and still have them accessible?

It is possible if you use a "junction point" which redirects from the default location to a new location. I have my resources on a second drive. There is a free program called Junction Link Magic which I use.

Will the "junction point" program work and be redirected correctly when Logos downloads updates to the software?

Provided you run Vista or Windows 7 it will create a "junction point" (a small file) on your hard drive. It needs the NTFS file system, so if you run Win XP on FAT file system you cannot do it  unless you convert to NTFS (which is a better file system!).  Even then, check that the program supports XP!

It will work as long as you don't delete the junction point or have an aggressive "file cleaner" program.

It is UNSUPPORTED by Logos, so you do it entirely at your own risk.
