... for my work laptop. It currently has EVERYTHING downloaded to the hard drive (7000+ books etc.)

What's the easiest way to do that?

Thanks!

Removing resources is described in https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360025106492-Select-which-resources-to-download 

Basically, you can select the resources in your Library, right-click and remove them

Just adding, when I was customizing just my choices, the easy way was to tag this and that, then select my tag, and download or unload. Then delete my tag. That way, I didn't have to not make any mistakes on selection one-by-one and start over ... and over.

...and after you do so, make sure to change your preferences so that new resources don't download. 

However: In a situation like this, perhaps the web app is best.

Thanks Graham, my confusion is how to remove 7000 at once, not one at a time? Is that even possible?! (please, God, say it is, LOL!)

OR should I just uninstall Logos and then reinstall with no resources selected for download to begin with?

Yes, its possible!

In the screenshot below I have filtered my library to just show monographs. I then selected then all by clicking the first one and then using Ctrl-A. Or you can click the first one, scroll down through the ones you want to remove and click Shift-Click-A

Then, in the Info pane, you can remove them all from your device in one go (red outline)

Does this make sense / work for you?

Yippers, thanks muchly! I had tried doing a CTRL-A earlier but it hadn't worked at the time (I must have just pressed the wrong button or something... definitely a USER issue, LOL!) so that's why I suddenly thought, "Oh no! You mean there's no way for me to do it all at once?!"

Thanks again Graham and all, you guys rock!

Hey all, well this is bizarre... I had started to delete all the resources, and must have done something at some point, and I just can't figure out what it is, but when I start Logos with my wifi on, it tells me it's trying to download 13 gigs of stuff or whatever. I have turned off any option to automatically download/update anything in the settings so it can't be that right?

Any thoughts?
