Hi Paul and Ed!

Jsword engine allows you to put modules elsewhere. You can do this in two ways:
1. when calling application specify "-Djsword.bible.dir=<some_dir>"
2. Start application go to : Tools->Options, there is option Sword and base 
directory, this is what you must change

Be carefull, once you change you will be able to access bibles (and other 
things), only in that directory. It might be best option to create some 
directory *for example data in subdirectory of JSword and put all bibles 
You want there in, you must have two dirs there mods.d and modules.
