Just got some questions to ask...
1. If I have multiple URLS in my project, and I have a Setcookie=parameter, does Setcookie= apply to only the URL above? or does it apply to all the URLs?
2. I have downloaded some projects and stored in say c:\abc... However, I lost all the files in my OE directory.. Is it possible for me to use a web server and host in directory c:\abc and redownload it using OE? Will it recognice the MIME type? Or is there any other solutions?
Thanks

The SetCookie parameter sets MS Internet Explorer cookie on your system for that site, so every link that you download from the site should use it.

The easiest way would be to create a Project that downloads files to c:\abc with settings simular to the previous Project and then start loading it in "Do not load existing files" mode. It will go through all downloaded files and add them to its Map, so the Project will be restored this way.

But how did you loose all Projects? Maybe I will be able to help you to restore them?

Hmm..
1. hmm.. lets say its not Setcookie parameter.. but Referrer= parameter.. does it still apply to all URLs? What if then I want multiple URLs in the same project to have different referrers?
2. hmm.. This happened quite some time ago.. my HDD kindof crashed 2 months ago.. and since my projects are stored in another directory, I still have the contents, but my OE i my Main drive is gone. The thign is, for some of the sites, the site still exist, but for others, the site doesn`t exist.. I read one of your forum messages, U mentioned about the below method too, which I have tried.. What about for the sites that do not exist anymore? Any ideas? Just want to keep them in OE so Ican have a "database" of groups of sites organised in a nice way thoguh they won`t be updated anymore.. Thanks

Referer= applies the same referer value to each of the starting URLs. If you want to have separate Referer for each starting URL, it is better to have separate Projects.

This should work also for non-existing Internet sites. If you have downloaded some site to your hard disk and it no longer exists, you can still create a Project with the starting URL of that site and start its download in the "Do not load existing files" mode. Offline Explorer will not access Internet if files of the site exist on your had drive. Instead, such files will be added to the Project Map and you will be able to manage it.
