Can I estimate the size of a site(containning only HTML) to be downloaded before actually downloading it?
or, it would also be a help if I can know the way to move a half downloaded site to another location and then complete the downloading.

Thanks...

Unfortunately, no. Because each page has an unpredictable number of links to other pages. So, a full download is necessary to count all pages and their size.

Alright, I understood.
I was trying to download the website www.sriaurobindoashram.info without any audio and video files and I had set it for that unchecking the audio, video and archive and checking download only from this site. . But as downloading was in progress, the size of the download archive was being increased abruptly. for example if 200 MB was downloaded then the size of the directory became 4GB or sometimes even more.
I could not understand it, and will be highly obliged if you kindly analyze this and guide me exactly what to do for the best result.

Thanks again...

This should not happen. It is quite strange. I would suggest to try to make a remote support session. If you agree, please contact us directly at support@metaproducts.com to schedule the time.
