I have Esword on my laptop with numerous modules, some I have purchased and some I have downloaded for free.  How can I transfer them over from my laptop to my desktop?

Are you using a PC or apple system


I can only lead you to the truth. I can’t make you believe it.

 

 

“DISCERNMENT is not simply telling the difference between what is Right and Wrong;

      rather, it is the difference between Right and almost right.”

HOW CAN I MOVE MY E-SWORD TO A NEW COMPUTER?

Copy the e-Sword *program* directory (typically "C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword\") onto the new PC as this will get your various modules transferred. You will still need to install e-Sword from its setup program to properly install the various system files, etc.

Also, you will want to copy the contents of your e-Sword *user* directory (typically "Libraries\Documents\My Documents\e-Sword\") to get your personal notes and other customizations transferred.

I am using a PC.  I have downloaded the Esword program onto my desktop but that is all.

Moving or copying e-Sword resources from one machine (PC) to another is perhaps the most easiest things anyone can do. And all it takes in a pen drive (Memory Stick).

 

Depending on how many resources you have, a 16 or 32GB Pen Drive is sufficient to do the job. And with that, here is what you need to do:

  • In the current machine you are using, simply put in your Pen Drive into a USB port.
  • Then open Windows File Explorer/Manager, or whatever you call it.
  • From there go to your e-Sword folder
  • select all your resource files and then drag it over to to where Windows File Explorer shows where your Pen Drive is, and then just drop them into there.
  • Close down Windows File Explorer, and then remove your Pen Drive.

OK now for stage two:

  • In your new machine, bang in your Pen Drive into a USB Port
  • Open Windows File Explorer.
  • Go to your Pen Drive, and then select all you resource files
  • Drag them over to where your e-Sword folder is on your C: drive, and then drop them in there.
  • Exit Windows Explorer, and boot up e-Sword, and hey presto you will see all your resource files.

I trust this is helpful to you.

 

Blessings,

Thanks.  I think I got them.  I had 2 folders.  The modules were in Program Files (x86) folder and the topic files were in the documents folder.  Your help is much appreciated.

I am missing my ESV Bible as well as 10 commentaries.  Everything else seems to be there.  Does anyone have an idea where they might be or why they didn't copy over?

Ok I found it.  I had to search my File Explorer for some of the files.  They were in C:\users\owner\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\e-sword.  I have them now.
