I have a laptop with Flash storage. I currently have just over 7.5 GB remaining. Whenever Logos is indexing, I get a warning that I'm almost out of HD storage and I watch as I get down to about 100mb remaining. A couple more files on my HD, and the indexing process will start maxing out my storage.

Is there a way to limit how much flash storage Logos indexing will use?

No. You need to either clean up your drive and make some significant space OR move to a "skinny" installation on that device.

FL now allows you to choose which resources to download to your device. Seriously... you need much more space than you have. 20 GB at a minimum.

I'm taking a risk because I'm not techy. Moving your Logos WebCache to a SD card frees significant drive space. Resources don't take up much space comparatively speaking. I fully accept any and all criticism and correction with respect to these statements,

I have no idea about the implications of doing so. You should certainly NOT put the rest of the installation on an SD card.

Logos WebCache includes Mobile Education videos, which can consume lots of storage space along with being relocatable (or deleted). Logos wiki has => Install in different folder or drive that includes WebCache relocation. Relocating WebCache has less risks than relocating Resources (better option for Resources is "skinny" installation that also reduces index usage)

And there it is, the most definitive opinion on the matter. Geeked
