How can I move an existing project to another computer, in another folder? (let`s say I want to move project settings _and_ downloaded files, or maybe just project settings)

to copy just the project settings: mark the project and press CTRL+C. this copies the project settings into the clipboard.
create an empty textfile -> press CTRL+V -> save the file -> copy the file to the other Computer.

on the other computer: -> open the textfile -> select all text -> press CTRL+C -> go into Offline Explorer -> press CTRL+V -> OE creates the project you copied.

copying the files and databases is not that easy i think (i would even say not possible, but i am not shure)

Thank you for helping me!

To transfer all Projects with loaded files, please use Tools | Backup feature. To restore on another computer - Tools | Restore.

Perhaps, yet there is a small problem I have noticed when using Backup/Restore feature, at least in the shareware version I am using now (maybe I should get a later build). Backing up and restoring a project forces OE to download all files, not just modified ones. For me, a deprived-of-cable-connection person, it is, as you can imagine, a major glitch. Is there a way to counter this problem? After each Windows reinstall, I have to download everything I have and it is getting tedious.

One more thing. I have TRIED to follow Oleg`s advice on copying all *map and webdown.dat files. Does not work for me. OE still behaves like they were not there.

All downloaded Web sites should be in the directory which OE has in the Options dialog | File Locations section - Download directory.
