Action: I downloaded a portion of our intranet to the local "c:\download" folder. I then "exported" it to "c:\export". At that point, I ran a "hyper-link checking" software package to check it.
Result: There were many broken links. Strangely, many files that existed in "c:\download" were not placed in the "c:\export" folder (when I ran the "export" function in Offline Explorer). Note: I ran the "normal" export (not the fast one).
Any suggestions? Thanks
Does your Project really contain all files from the original, before the export?
Have a look in the "Link Translation":
Project Properties... Advanced
Check your export settings... try other settings, i.e.
Filenames format: keep as-is
Unchek "Use standard extensions for files with known file types"
Check if you can`t browse correctly through the exported project. Which links don`t work?

Are there any other files missing than Temp files, *.wd3 or *.primary?
But you know: Oleg can help you much more than I. Wait for his answer. ;-)
Have you exported the project with "Do not create subdirectories" enabled?
This could cause a directory overload. Do you have any directory with more than ~ 1000 files in it?
And I`m pretty sure that you have enough free disk space...
And please try also to export the project with "Joliet CD-R 64" filename format enabled.

On which directory? c:\download or c:\export or both of them? Do both directories have broken links?
Is the project in c:\ export ok (browsing in OE)?
