Is there any chance to add an option to OE to make the name user configurable that is being used for the overlad diretories ? I just run into the problem, that it seems as if a number of utilties I am using is not really happy with the "%&" construct being used. Also it would be nice if it would be possible to set the number of files after when a new directory is being created.

Just for your info:
I normally use batch files (.bat) for processing downloaded files and in a batch file you can`t have "%" in a file or directory name since it used for referencing variables.

Also please add leading zeros to the numbering scheme for the overload directories. I am just now working on files from a download project containing quite a few overload directories and the sorting is kind of a mess without leading zeros.

Well, you can change that using Registry. Key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\Offline Explorer Pro\Parameters

Add a string value with the name:


By default it is:


Leading zeros will be harder to implement because of compatibility issues.

Will do that for now. It would be nice if these parameter would be configurable through the UI.

Well, it is hard to have all these parameters configurable in UI - it will make it too complex.

But how to increase 1000 limit for creating new folders?
What key of Registry should I find?

Please try to change the MaxOvrFiles in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\Offline Explorer Pro\Parameters

Do not set it higher than 50000 and less than 100.

I have not this volume:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\Offline Explorer Pro\Parameters
Because I use Enterprise Edition

What the key for Enterprise Edition?
I ve got:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\Offline Explorer MX\Parameters

Oleg Chernavin 10/06/2010 08:15 am
Yes, this is correct.

Artem 10/06/2010 10:09 am
In volume:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\Offline Explorer MX\Parameters

I cant find this parameter

Yes, it should be the DWORD parameter.
