I'm interested in a couple of books that are unfortunately only available as part of the Perseus Classics Collection (https://www.logos.com/product/9940/perseus-classics-collection).

Does anyone have a rough estimate of how much space this will take up on my computer?

That. Is. Huge.

Thanks for the link! :)

But worth it!  The only thing I don't like is how some are only in Latin (e.g. Tacitus) with no English versions but hard to complain when free.

I recently helped some people set up Logos using Logos Basic.  I warned them to NOT download the Perseus collection just because there have been so many people on the forums through the years that complain that the volume of books interferes with finding resources in the Library.

I would recommend that you set up a dummy Logos account for the sole purpose of downloading the Perseus collection.  You can discard the whole thing if you find that you do not need access to the Perseus books of interest.

I wish the collection was broken into smaller ones though... I only want 4-5 of those books (to be stored and indexed) but they aren't available as standalone volumes.

Decisions, decisions.

Though this will be tedious, you can grab the whole collection and then hide all of the resources you don't want.  When you hide them, they aren't stored on your computer or indexed.
