Hi all,

today I will get a second SSD (8 times the size of the first). I would like to switch my Logos library to my new SSD. Any tips and tricks?

The pointers at https://wiki.logos.com/Install_in_different_folder_or_drive are worth looking at

thanks a lot! Quite some steps, I am wondering if it isn't easier to just uninstall and install again. Or would that cause other problems?

It will not be a copy from SSD to SSD, but will download and index all your library, which will require some time & bandwidth. The only issue would be Personal Books you have built on the old drive and not uploaded: those you have to either rebuild or scan in. 

Running Logos 9 latest (beta) version on Win 10

Apart from the Personal Books issue Mick mentions, I would go ahead with the reinstall option (assuming bandwidth is not an issue)
