Copy An Entire Website To Your Hard Drive

Have you ever wanted to copy an entire web site (not just the current page) to your hard drive for true offline browsing? If so, then check out the free program, HTTrack Website Copier.

Rather than try to explain it myself, HTTrack gives a great explanation of what it does and how it works:

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 site’s 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.

I have personally used this program many times and it works great.

Please use this program responsibly though. You shouldn’t “copy” a web site every day or during peak usage times… doing so may get you banned by the web site admin.
