multiple versions of a website

Hi,

In Offline Explorer it is possible to download a single website (always the same), say once every hour.
It seems though that only the latest version is available for offline browsing.
For example I download one website 24 times per day, every hour once.
Is it possible to selectivly see the version of a website for a specific point in time (e.g. 4 a.m - while I browse the downloads at 8 a.m.)?

Thanks and regards,
Hermann

I solved the problem with a file syncronisation software (Freefilsync in my case) that is capable of versioning files with a time stamp.
Since OE doesn't save its files in html, I had to use httrack on the command line as a script with a scheduler. The same for the sync software , it has to be scheduled to copy the files in a different folder.

I am sorry for the late answer!

Yes, it is possible. You can setup it to download every 1:00 hour in the Properties dialog - Schedule section.

And also you can use URL Macros in the Download Directory setting of the Project:

c:\download\site{:0hour}\

This would use different download directory for each hourly version, like:

c:\download\site02\
c:\download\site11\
c:\download\site23\

and so on.
