Hi,

When i download i found in the queue that each site are redownloaded many times and many sites i needn`t use. So the downloaded project was so big. How can i organized to download only files i want?

I have aborted sites in queue but when i stop download and then restart, these aborted sites return. How can i continue to download with queue list after i stop?

Thank for your help.

The best way is to use the Project`s URL Filters to define what you need and what you don`t want. If you will have problems with it, let me know what site you are downloading and what exactly you need to get from it. I will show you how to do it.

If you want to save the Queue contents in a file, please go to the Download menu and select "Suspend to file".

I want to download some courses at http://ocw.mit.edu/ such as: http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/Electrical-Engineering-and-Computer-Science/6-045JAutomata--Computability--and-ComplexitySpring2002/CourseHome/index.htm (1)

I want to download 5 sites: Course Home, Syllabus, Calendar, Recitations, Assignments, Exams and from each site i want to download its link lectures. (it`s the content of this course). I have choosen level limit 2 when download from site (1) and downloaded 37Mb(!!) with 2500 files but the queue still have 1600 files and the browse doesn`t have all PDF lectures I want.

When I download some forum (such as your forum), if I choose level limit 1 I`ll have to downloaded many projects, but if I choose higher level limit OE will download many sites i needn`t use. And the same content of each forum page (example: New, Company, product,..in your forum ) will be redownloaded many times. Tell me how to download your forum with minimum disk.

Thanks.

Level=2 is not enough. I would suggest you the following settings:

URL:
http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/

Uncheck Level, URL Filters | Server - Load only from the starting server, URL Filters | Directory - Load only from the starting directory.

This will load all of the materials of the site.

To download only the forum, please go to URL Filters | Filename, select Custom configuration and add the following to the Included filename keywords:

forums

You can uncheck the Project Level setting to get all forum messages.

I`m sorry, but it doesn`t work for me. All PDF lectures still can`t be browsed, I think the structure of this site is not like you thought. Can you try downloading it and help me one more time?

Can you send me your exact Project settings to support@metaproducts.com ? Just select the Project, click Copy button on toolbar and paste it to the E-mail message.

I will see what is wrong there.
