downloading a whole directory

is there a way to download a whole directory, that is even those files that aren`t linked to an html page?
In other words, an index.html (or default.html etc...) file with no links prevents to download every file in that directory?

I am sorry, but it is impossible to get all files in a directory, which listing is disabled. You can use URL Macros to enumerate all possible names, but this is a lengthy process.

many thanks for your reply
I didn`t know url macros and I think they could be useful because I partly know the files names

OK. Let me know how these names may look like and I will try to suggest you.

Do you know how to download some mp3s from the blocked cites like zvuki and crap like that? For instance, if I know the numeration of the tracks, can I generate it in the macros or not?
Best regards!

Well, I am not familiar with that site myself, so I can`t give you a good advise. But you can tell me how it is blocked and how URLs look like there.

Hey,
The site is http://cclib.nsu.ru/projects/rozenbaum/home/, about Rozenbaum. I want to download all the mp3 stuff they have there without every single clicking on the each of the songs. I`ve tried to, but Explorer Pro couldn`t find any existing audio files. But they do exist, it can be easily checked out by clicking on any audio track they have there. Besides, they do store all the tracks on their site, sp it now just links to another resourse. I suspect that I need to generate names of the tracks somehow, for instance *001-..., cause if I specifiy particular directory, Explorer starts to download files. If you have some ideas how to make such a micros, it would be great.
Best,
Oleg

OK. This is quite easy to load. Please use the following URL for the Project:

http://cclib.nsu.ru/projects/rozenbaum/mp3/{:100..999}.mp3

Thanks for answering, man!
Do you know where I can find some manual to get acquainted with technologies like abovementioned ones? Or you use hit or miss to get the result?

Thanks!
Oleg
p.s. Where are you from?

You are welcome!

No, I just look at the site to see how URLs are being named and I am trying to understand common rules there. Such sequental numbering is very common to Web sites.

I am from Russia myself.

Nice to meet you Oleg,
I am from Russia too, but now study abroad.
I have one morte question to crack for you. Yesterday I found great site to download some music I like, but it`s pretty time consuming to open up every directory and then save files even using flashget. I`ve tried to generate some algoritm to download pretty much alike you did last time, but unfortunately got no result. If you have some time, please have a look at this link:

I need just to download all the stuff they have there, but it`s not easy for me to understand the best way to do it.
Thanks,
Oleg

It should be easy - just let Offline Explorer load from that URL for unlimited Levels from all servers and directories.
