 Hi folks, I know this is been discussed elsewhere, but I haven't been able to find the post, and I wanted to make sure that I had the most up-to-date information on the topic. 

I have nearly 10,000 resources, thus downloading logos on to a new computer is an all day and all night affair. My old MacBook Pro is on it's last leg and I am updating to a new one. Wondering if there's a way to copy all of the resource files over to the new Mac via my network instead of downloading from the Internet ? 

 Thanks for any wisdom you might be able to provide.

Sure. I'll try and get a link for you, but you will use the "scan" method.

I didn't know how quickly I'd find it since I'm on my iPad, but here you go: https://wiki.logos.com/Quick_Installation_onto_Multiple_Macs#Copy_Logos_Resources_to_Mac_OS_X

I would point you to the last section of that link, "Duplicate Logos Mac Installation". If you are setting up a new Mac or creating a new account, make sure you have identical username, that is, your login name (it is case sensativ). This is by far the quickest and easiest method. There is no dling and no indexing. It duplicates everything. I would also suggest using a thunderbolt cable and booting your old Mac in Target Disk mode. I have done this many times.
