Problem deleting an e-Sword module?

PROBLEM DELETING AN E-SWORD MODULE?
Have you been puzzled by e-Sword having created unexpected virtual copies of files, stored in folders different to the ...\e-Sword folder? Dr Dave Thomason discovered that to delete an e-Sword module, successfully, was done by doing this from inside e-Sword, on the Options > Resource Settings option. Select all, then deselect all. Then select the specific one, right click on the name, and then use the "Delete Resource Permanently" option. This will delete the existing entry and also the hidden files of this resource, wherever the PC has hidden it. Then select all again. For details provided by Dr Dave Thomason, access http://doctordavet.com and look for the e-Sword Module Maintenance file.




I've noticed duplicates in my reference section...

One is a TOPX and the other is a REFX.

I should ditch the TOPX ones right? :)

Also out of curiosity, whats the difference between a BBLI and a BBLX bible file?  Compressed or encrypted?

TOPX and REFX files. Put a copy of the filename.topx and put a copy of the filename.refx files into your C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword folder, then you can read both the TOPX and REFX files in the Reference Library window in e-Sword.

The TOPX files - If you put a copy of the filename.topx in your personal ...\Documents\e-Sword folder, then you can access this module, and can edit it, in the Topic Notes Editor option in e-Sword. You cannot edit the REFX modules, which have been compressed.
