copy websites to your local hard drive Cyotek WebCopy enables you to create a local copy of a full or partial website, so that you can browse it while you're offline. You can choose to download the entire site or set simply exclusion rules to skip or include content that matches a certain pattern. The program offers a variety of flexible settings that allow you to deal with query strings, domain aliases, forms and passwords, file extensions and other technical details that may need tweaking. Cyotek WebCopy works well for simple site structures, but if you need to customize the project settings, it can get a little complicated. Although a very extensive help file comes included, we still found it to be a little more difficult to use than other tools. The program also fails to detect the website default page, if it is anything other than "index.html" - while this can be tweaked in the settings, the information may not always be known to the user. Other features include website reports, site diagram, link export, support for Regular Expressions, and more. Copyright

It copies 3 stars by gimpguy Mar 23, 2013 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
I found that it works well on many web sites but there are many it doesn't, Snapfiles for one and others. I did try to tweak it for recognition of but it still failed and after extensive searching and reading, there are many sites it just won't copy. Of course some sites may take a long time depending on the site you try to copy so that's not really Cyotek's fault, it's just too much data to copy. It seems on most sites with all the ads and links these days, it's just too much to copy a web site, I would rather print it off as PDF or just screenshot it. If you want to analyze a page, seeing how it's put together, images, code, etc... you can open the pages up in Dreamweaver or other program and it's all laid out. There are other methods, I know but thought I'd throw that in there. All in all, I really don't want to go through all the trouble using this program to copy a web site unless it's a very basic one. I have other web site copiers that work faster and will copy near any site I throw at it without the need to tweak until my fingers are wore out. It's a decent software for free but there are better. show Review details
