Hi Oleg,

I put to download a very big site, with ten of thousands of files, and after program stop responds I close it from Ctrl+Alt+Del/ Task manager. Now a catastrophe appear when next time open the OE: all but a single one projects dissapeared from the list...
How can I restore the projects ? Thank you very much.

In most cases, it is easy to recover lost projects. All Projects are in the webdown.dat file, and there are many backups of that file.

Open the Options dialog | Advanced | File Locations section. Please see the Projects, Maps and Templates folder location.

Now quit Offline Explorer Pro, open Windows Explorer and browse to that folder. Select all files with the webdown filename (webdown.dat is the Projects file, the rest are backup copies) and copy them to another directory to keep them intact.

Select the most recent file with the maximum size and copy it back under the webdown.dat filename.

Start Offline Explorer Pro to see if all of your Projects are in place. If something is wrong with the Projects list, try to repeat the process with another webdown file.

Best regards,
