Hi together,

We have lost a part of our site due to server crash. We have no further backup, nothing. Now we are trying to get the data back by crawling archive.org. I have already found some posts here that recommend to use the "URL substitutes" feature in the Offline Explorer Pro version. BUT I cannot find that function. I am using the German trial version of OE Pro. Could it be, that this function only exists in the payed version? However, I here found information saying that besides 30 days trial and page limit there is no limitation of trial version. Can you help?

Please also provide information which settings to do when using Offline Explorer on archive.org.

Many thanks for your support
Johann

I was improving web.archive.org site support yesterday. Please download this version:

http://www.metaproducts.com/download/betas/eesetup.exe

It supports coversion of archived site to its usual form. Project Properties dialog - Parsing section. Supply the starting URL, set Level to unlimited to get all pages, URL Filters - Server - Load only from the starting server.

URL Filters - Directory - add your site name to the Included keywords list, like:

/www.server.com/

Best regards,
