What is HTTrack?
HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility. It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original sites relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the mirrored website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system. WinHTTrack is the Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP/Vista release of HTTrack, and WebHTTrack the Linux/Unix/BSD release.
The last version (3.49-2) was released in May 2017.

It does the job, can't say the same for paid versions.
Unlike some other web crawlers like wget and internet download manager, this one has much more options, is available for all platforms, and is GUI. Also unlike IDM it uses HTTP compression.
Tried to download site using HTTrack, but failed because of authentication required (but Internet Explorer is always authenticated even when open site after reboot). Installed Firefox and logged in. ScrapBook successfully downloaded site.
Wonderful program, helps preserve the history by mirroring the old sites to read them later locally or upload somewhere for perpetuity.
can not download dynamic web components or webpages targeted to static sites.
Actually good working software, and it is full-fledged application launches without net or java which is great.
Backup old websites before installing new cms. Thanks!
