Download "from" downed website

|Hello. I have downloaded a certain forum that is going down tomorrow, however set up this project to download files from base server only, because otherwise I would not be able to finish it all in time. Forum contains a lot of images hosted on other websites. Is it possible to download those images later, after forum itself will no longer be available online, and if yes, doi have to make any preparations today, while resource is still available?|

|Yes, download only from the starting server and make sure Images are not allowed to download from any site in the Wizard.
When the main site is down, you may change Project Properties to allow images from any location and use "Do not load existing files" mode to get only the missing files.

|Thank you very much for your timely reply!
I have one question left: I am not entirely sure in which fashion will the main site go down (will it disappear from the net completely or will be raplaced by some kind of announcement page). Do I have to set up any additional measures to ensure that already downloaded content will not becone corrupt because of the main page replacement?

|Actually, setting up the Project to "Do not load existing files" will make sure that already downloaded pages and files are kept intact and not replaced by newer versions from the site.
