i want to download a website, however, there is a folder /cgi-bin, which i would not like to download from this website. What settings should i do in offline explorer, in order to avoid downloading thousands of files from this folder (useless for me).

Thank You

This is easy - please use URL Filters | Directory section in the Project Properties dialog, select Custom Configuration there and add /cgi-bin/ to the Excluded keywords list.

actually, i have already started the downloading of the website in question, and eventually, i have already downloaded some files from this folder, so i clicked on Suspend. Now i have added /cgi-bin/ and /cgi-bin/yabb/. However, when i click again on suspend the resume, it seems, that offline explorer is still downloading files from these folders. Any ideas why ?

Thanks

You can go to the Queue tab, select all files by mask /cgi-bin/ and abort them.
