About "Prevent overloading" folders

Author Message

Hello. I`m downloading sites with large number of files. As suggested, I have enabled the parameter "Prevent Overloading ..." for folders with more than 1000 files.

The question is: when I want to "surf" these downloaded sites, they can only be surfed using OE`s built-in browser. If I try to surf them using Internet Explorer, the files stored on the %&Ovr folders are not visible (file not found error). Is this correct ? Is there any way to fix this?

Thank you very much.
Pablo.

Yes, the Internal server inside Offline Explorer works around these subfolders. To browse such files outside Offline Explorer, please export the downloaded Project (File | Export). This will correct all links to make them pointing to the correct subfolders when necessary.

Thank you Oleg for your answer.
Please let me comment another two issues with OE:

1- I`m letting OE run during the nights, downloading some sites. When I came back to the computer in the mornings, in 50% of the cases, I find the computer with the following message (approximately): "Error: the application could not be finished. Press OK to close it." Then I click OK, and the OE icon in the tray icon bar dissapears (OE is closed). I do NOT have the "close program when all the projects are finished" checked, so It should not self-close. I`m using OEP 4.1.2319.

2- After a normal OE run downloading some sites, when I close the program, the hard disk runs for a long, long time (over 1 minute). Is this correct? The software was idle for a long time after the last download, and all the contents are finished and ready. I think OE has had enough time for committing the files and caches... ? Perhaps a "commit action" has to be added when the software is idle; it could be safer, don`t you think?
Perhaps this is all a Windows behaviour you can`t manage.

Thank you,
Pablo.

Can you please run Offline Explorer from the command line this way:

oe.exe /NoDB

Would this cause these errors to disappear?

OK. I will try tonight running the OE icon with the /NoDB parameter.
Is this related to the point 1 of my post, or point 2, or both ?

Both issues might be related to the database that is used there. The database is not critical, so you can test without it.

I`m doing my first tests with the parameter /NoDB.
Observing the downloaded folders, now I can see several hundreds of ".primary" files which I didn`t have before. Is this correct: when using the /NoDB parameter, the information is stored in the .primary files?
Or they have nothing to do...?
Thanks. Pablo.

Yes, these files contain original (unchanged links) Web pages for later updates. Please complete the tests to make sure that the database is wrong or not here.

Dear Oleg, sorry but it took me some time to make the tests. This is the report:

- After several hours of OEP working during the nights, I always get a Windows warning:
"Not enough virtual memory; Windows is expanding virtual memory" (my machine is a P4 with 256
MB RAM, and 500 to 700 Mb assigned to virtual memory).

- If I close OEP, the HD works hardly for about 2 minutes, until OEP is really closed.

- Sometimes, in the mornings, I find the computer with the following message (approximately): "Error: the application could not be finished. Press OK to close it." Then I click OK, and the OE icon in the tray icon bar dissapears (OE is closed). I do NOT have the "close program when all the projects are finished" checked, so It should not self-close.

- I have tryed with oe.exe and also with oe.exe /NoDB, with the same results (except that I have
now thousands of .primary files. I hope that if I run again oe.exe, they will be deleted...?)

In my opinion, OEP might be doing some of these...
- Not commiting the files when every project is finished, OR
- While working, it is "eating" memory.

Any suggestions ?
Regards,
Pablo.

It is possible that Offline Explorer loads files faster than it can process and its parsing queue fills up. As a solution, please try to set 2 seconds delay between downloads in the Options dialog.

I think the reason has to be something different because of this: when I close OEP (and writes to the HD for about 2 minutes), it`s been hours since it has finished downloading. I mean: the hard disk is not working until I close OEP.

When you exit, it saves MAP files (which can be big), Projects file (webdown.dat) and templates.
