WinHTTrack is an offline browser utility that downloads a website from the Internet to a local directory. The program builds all linked files and directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server and saving them to your computer. WinHTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads.

Alternatively, X-WinHTTrack is a portable package for standard WinHTTrack.

reliable program, does what it says. occasionally crashes though

Been very handy indeed, I find some of the settings a little confusing but have yet to have it crash on me.

I can't find a setting to stop itself adding an option in the right click "New" section on the desktop though

WinHTTack v3.4x is very incompatible with multi-core CPU's. A symptom of this is the program randomly closing during mirrors. Couple of potential fixes for anyone having this problem:
1. Return to v3.32
2. Use imagecfg or similar to limit the WinHTTrack exe to a single CPU core. I have a Quad Core CPU and WinHTTrack closing itself every few minutes during a mirror was driving me crazy, so I adopted this solution. No closing since then I'm happy to say.

Chris, instead of silly workarounds why don't you report the errors to the programmers?

Just tried it. Seems to run fine, but the real problem is that its not a real mirroring program - it inserts all kinds of crap comments in the html files.

Sets up an explorer references to its own filetype (without asking)

No need to get the "X" version, which is outdated.Get the newest portable version from the download section, at the appĀ“s own website.
IMPORTANT TIP: after downloading your website, you can turn it into a single .EXE package by using WebSite Zip Packer (http://www.spadixbd.com/wsz/) and you can take your downloaded site with you on a pen drive.

@Observer
The X-WinHTTrack portable package is not outdated (V3.43-9).

Chris 2010-03-18 09:46

PJ: I did. Even they recommended returning to v3.32

F.Y.I
English Users: Must use "X-WinHTTrack.ini" from "English_Users" folder.

I just mirrored 2 websites filled with tutorials i use and the end-result is astonishing!
the links have all been adjusted to the offline location.
all corresponding images and files have been included.
it's even capable of syncing, and able to create a database for searching with words. It even has a built in browser, so you can browse the mirrored webpage.

Prior to this i was using Web2PDF, a free online service that was only capable of creating a snapshot of 1 page afterwhich i had to edit with Acrobat to adjust the links and stuff, no support for links, and it created a watermark on each page.

this is probably one of the most amazing software i have used.

Thanks to the author for making this free!
Def. Recommend and a def. 10.

V3.44-1

Some sites (not all), though, keep "phoning home" (or rather to third parties), every time you view a page offline. I wish HTTrack would handle this better. Otherwise it's a great program. I'm mentioning this as some might be unaware of connections getting established in the background while they are viewing their favourite pages offline.

V3.45-1

I've tried a few others over time and keep coming back to WinHTTrack. So lucky this program has been maintained over the years.

v3.46-1

Slick and super duper quick!

v3.48-2

Version 3.48-7 is out.

v3.48-6

Checker 2014-05-15 02:58

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

v3.48-7

WinHTTrack Website Copier is not portable, it has never been and it will never be- it creates a new Windows shell item anytime it starts. Better use the installer version because a decent uninstaller will delete the registry entries.

v3.49-1
