I've been really happy with HTTrack: http://www.httrack.com/

Freely distributable open source.

Subject: [thelist] Tool for Downloading web sites

I know some people have asked about a tool to download databased web
sites. Since I found a pretty good one that is reasonable product, I
thought I'd pass it along.

<tip type="Web Utilities" author="Kath Heytink">
The tool is called Web copier from MaximumSoft
http://www.maximumsoft.com/downloads/index.html  You provide the URL and
it downloads all the pages it finds at that URL by following internal
links. It creates static pages out of all the dynamic pages, names them
with a number, then changes all the links to match.


I used the free (no longer available ) lite version that I had
downloaded some time ago, but never used.  I was able to download my
entire site, complete with graphics and every dynamic page.  All the
internal links work. The only thing that doesn't work is the search - of

I was able to burn the site to CD for our CEO to take to the National
Sales meeting - where they will not have internet access during the
presentations. Very Nice.

There is a 30 free trial for the new version and the cost is $30 - very
reasonable for such a handy tool.

I have no affiliation to Maximumsoft.  I'm just a happy customer - who
will be putting in a PO request for the new version - and I thought I'd
pass the info along.
