This question may have been asked numerous times, but I couldn't find it...

Is there a way to download all books from Logos onto your computer? The reason I am asking is I assume reading from Logos relies on having an internet connection. If I didn't have an internet connection, or Logos servers went down (hypothetical situation of course), am I right in thinking we wouldn't be able to access our resources? I know we can export books one by one, but with thousands of them, it would of course take alot of time. I realise we have some form of back up on our devices, but I'm guessing without an internet connection, they are about as useful as a chocolate fireguard? 

Any advice appreciated.

Assuming you are using Logos 6 then the majority of your resources will already be on your PC - only the "large" items will be "in the cloud" - many maps, media etc.

That's the simple version.

If you have Logos Cloud then to ask the question suggests you've bought the wrong thing!

Given your activity time - I assume you are a UK based customer/user. Ditto!

I don't think having bought Logos Cloud makes a difference here.

With the Logos 6 software installed on a PC the Logos Cloud resources will be downloaded to that PC and can be accessed from there irrespective of an Internet connection (with the exceptions you mentioned in your post)

Nicky - as Kevin points out your resources should be downloaded on to your computer. Is there anything to cause you to think this isn't the case?

Thank you both for your replies.

This is possibly what I needed to know. I wanted to ensure that should there be no connection available that resources could still be accessed. So although the resources are downloaded to the pc in Logos format, they can still be accessed. Makes sense to me now. I guess I was thinking inline with mobile devices where I know we can download and access without a connection, but they take up too much space and without downloading need the internet to access. I can see the same does not apply for a PC.

Everybody's favourite activity with desktop computers & some tablets is "Downloading and Indexing", which assures us we have resources that have been downloaded to the computer and then indexed for fast searching.
