Looking in my Resources folder, I see a bunch of files like these with long alpha-numeric strings for names:

What are these files? Can I safely delete them? Is there a command in Logos for doing so? Or should I just ignore them? (I'm using Logos 6 if it matters.)

Yea I just started using BackBlaze and noticed a bunch of LOGOS4 files and was wondering what they were and why since I have Logos 6 (And never had any previous versions of Logos)

I would not delete them unless you hear from FL that it is ok..

I am not an expert on these things. My first guess is that they are Vyrso Edition resources, which have funky file names. For example, this is a John Maxwell title in Vyrso: 4CC27AE5FCA8D279BF40C7FC977E5CF6.logos4

Interesting! My guess would have been that they were leftover debris from program crashes. But they do have the right extension for books of some sort.

Don't delete them, they are resource files. As new versions of logos have been introduced, the resource files have been optimized for that version.

In the early days of Logos 2.0, resources used a dual file system for each file. The name of the file usually identified the book and had two extensions. I.E. The King James Version had two files, KJV.lix and KJV.lsf.

The next major change in Logos was when it became Libronix. Then each resource was contained in one file, so in our example, the King James Version became KJV.lbxlls.

The next major change was to Logos 4. The resources still used only one file, but they used a new extension, so in our example, the file was now KJV.logos4.

Even though we are now up to Logos 6, the basic file structure for resources has not changed.

Also, originally file names were fairly obvious for the resources. Back to our example, KJV for King James, likewise NIV for New international Version, NASB for New American Standard, etc. At some point Faithlife started using nondescript file names sch as the ones you referenced.

Yeah, I confirmed via my library that they are Vyrso books.
