I have 2 SSDs and the large one is the D. I would like to have my Logos resources on it. Like having the M Ed downloads on hand and they are getting pretty big. Do I have to re-install completely and put the whole app on D (if I can even do that) or can I move the folder off of the C drive and point the app to it?

Sorry if this is posted elsewhere. I looked for a while.Thanks

Would be better to re-install completely so can specify custom location on D.

Logos Wiki has => Quick Installation onto multiple computers and => Install in different folder or drive

You can do so without re-installing, but beware it is not supported by Faithlife. See https://wiki.logos.com/Install_in_different_folder_or_drive#Move_to_a_different_drive .

The best option (supported) is re-installing onto the D drive. You can do this without re-downloading using Method 3. Note that you must backup the resource folder before uninstalling i.e.

  • backup the resource folder 
  • uninstall Logos
  • install onto D drive using Method 3
  • remove the remnants of the old Logos folder from its location on C drive (wiki will give you the path).

Thanks both of you. I guess I was hoping something in version 8 changed on this.

Using method is failing for me due to lack of expertise with interface. They say I need to enter Scan d:\resources at the command. I can find no command. Are they talking DOS or PowerShell?

They are talking of the command box at the top of Logos.

In logos 8 is this the window that contains "enter passage or search", I see nowhere else.

Thanks for the help so far. I may be missing something. My C drive started filling up a few weeks back when I tried downloading my mobile ed video content. Does that  video content go to the resources folder or somewhere else that also needs to be moved to D? Will it simpler to install all of it on D and not try to use C and D?

Video content goes into WebCache folder. Downloaded videos can be deleted

Simpler is custom installation on D (so all Logos files are on D).
