I am going to need to re-install Windows Seven in the next week or so and need to back-up things to prepare for this heartache.  What is the best method for backing up Logos resources so that I do not have to re-download a massive set of files? 

I have a large number of resources which I can shift to an external HD, but it is it possible to back up the program itself?

Let me try again. With Logos 3, I moved all my books from my old laptop to an external HD, reinstalled Logos 3 and restored my licenses, then copied back to a new laptop.  I do not think that is going that easy with Logos 4.  What is the best method for moving Logos to an external device and restoring it later?

The Logos site serves as the backup as I understand it. Simply reinstall the software and the resources wil follow.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

The key is to backup your \Logos4 folder as a number of methods are then available for reinstalling L4 - see http://wiki.logos.com/Quick_Installation_onto_multiple_computers.

I recommend Method 3 as being the most reliable. Your documents (notes, collections, guides etc) will be restored from the Logos4 server.

You don't need to restore the program, since it is only 38 MB of download. All resources you should install the way Dave Hooton advices you.
