I didn't see any mention on the forum of a large update being released, so I'm wondering if my notice of "Updates Available" for 962.2 MB is unusual?

I'm running 4.5b SR-2.

Here is what happen before the notice appeared: I received and indexed the latest EEC volume last night.  Then I placed an order for the free Cranmer resource mentioned on the blog. I rec'd an email indicating I could download the resource.  I waited an hour or so, but a notice did not appear in L4, so I typed "Update Resources" in the command bar and the notice for update appeared, but it was much larger than expected for just that one book, 962.2 MB. The notice also appears after rebooting the PC.

Did I trigger a duplicate download of recent updates that I already have?

Thanks in advance,

Scott

I received the same EEC and Cranmer resources, but not the 962.2MB download.  I'm not sure what your received.

Exactly the same here.  I just tried "update now" and did not receive anything else.

It is my understanding that "Update Resources" performs a more thorough check of your resources against the Logos servers, than "update now." It may be that by using the command "Update Resources," your installation found more things that needed updating or adding to your library. Is there any chance Logos downloaded Faithlife videos?

Have you tried refreshing your Home Page by pressing F5 (Windows)? When your home page refreshes it should tell you what the update(s) were.

This is TOTALLY OFF-TOPIC (sort of) but I did the F5 refresh on the home page, which showed the 1000 Images resource updated yesterday.

That's a big boy, so I went to see just 'who' is the big boy on the block in Logos-land.

For me it turned out to be 1,001 Churches by WM Ramsay.  He weighs in at almost 300 megabytes (not counting the Logos maps).

I don't know if you have Ramsay ... it was a CP offering last year, and centers in Turkey and the history of Christianity there. It's worth a browse just to again look at the older churches, and surmise the hard work from an earlier world. MANY pictures!

I don't normally use the Home Page, but did check it for update info before posting my question. My Home Page lists the EEC letters of John and SR-2 from last week (2 weeks ago?) as the only updates. No mention of pending updates. Thanks anyway for the suggestion.

No Faithlife activity.

Ah, Ha! -- That clears up my concern about an unnecessary download. http://wiki.logos.com/Logos_4_Commands

It does may me wonder how 962.2 MB of resources missed updates?  I didn't think my use of L4 was pushing any frontiers, but possibly when I copied the resources from my old PC to a new PC, something went out of sync.

So I don't think there is any reason to not accept the update.

Thanks.

That sounds like a prime suspect. Geeked
