I tried to download all the fonts from this page. I sat and watched it download over 17,000 ttf files, but when It got done, I only had 3,000 or so. I searched my hard drive, and they definitly didnt get saved. The site owner mentions that he has spiders blocked. Im just wondering if it is possible to grab all the fonts, and how to do it.

Thanks

It looks like that directory was unable to hold that amount of files. There is a limit of files per directory in Windows filesystem. To overcome it, please open the Options dialog in Offline Explorer Pro, go to Advanced | File Locations and check the "Prevent directories from overloading" box. Now click OK, remove directory with all these font files from your hard disk and download the site again.

Offline Explorer Pro will create subfolders when there are too many files in a directory, so that loaded files will not be lost.

I hope this helps.
