Does this program override www.SITENAME/robots.txt by default??

Interested to know, as I''m currently using a rival product which I have to set robots.txt to be ignored if I want to override the robots.txt.

Thanks

Offline Explorer uses its own exclusions in the URL Filters - Directory and Filename sections of the Project Propeties dialog. You can setup flexible keywords there to download or skip certain sections of Web sites. Therefore there is no need to use robots.txt files.

Thank you for that explanation. So it basically overrides robots.txt if I understand correctly?

Yes, as a simple explanation, it works this way.
