I'm currently doing this:

Mac OSX 10.4 --> Parallels --> Win XP --> L4(PC)

 

If it makes any difference, I'm also doing this concurrently:

Mac OSX 10.4 --> L1.1.2(Mac)

 

If (or when) I upgrade to Mac OSX 10.6, I want to be able to do this:

Mac OSX 10.6 --> L4(Mac)

 

Is there anything I can do to shortcut the tedious initial downloading / indexing process by copying some of my L4(PC) files from some directory somewhere on my virtual machine before I do the OS upgrade, then copying them back to some directory somewhere into the upgraded MacOS after I install L4(Mac)?

Thanks.

Another thought: Logos for Mac 4 automatically scans Logos 1.2.2 resource location.

Blog entry has information about using Logos 4 Resources (books) in previous version

Mac OS X observation: Leopard (10.5) and Snow Leopard (10.6) include Time Machine - needs external disk drive - since indexes can be rebuilt, can be excluded from backup:

/Users/<your_id>/Library/Application Support/Logos4/Data/<random>/BibleIndex

/Users/<your_id>/Library/Application Support/Logos4/Data/<random>/LibraryIndex

/Users/<your_id>/Library/Application Support/Logos4/Data/<random>/ResourceManager/logos

I allow Time Machine to backup those files and my oldest backup is still 12/13/08 on a 500 GB drive. Since Resource Manager contains all the resources (12.97 GB on my installation), I would want to back it up. Otherwise, I would need to re-download all those resources in case of a disk failure.

The index files are about 6GB total. I have Platinum plus multiple additions.

I'm currently only on 10.4 (Tiger). No Time Machine.
