I recently had a client who had lost contact with the person who previously maintained their site. Unfortunately, they had no passwords or anything, and needed to switch hosting to be able to update the site.
The site was fairly small, so I just went through and downloaded each page through my browser. The images and such were placed in directories like "index_files", so I had to move all of those into folders like "images" and change the hrefs and such.
Anyway, before doing that, I went online and saw that there were a bunch of programs to download entire sites. But the first couple I tried didn't quite fit the bill. This was a small site, so I did it by hand to save time, but if I ever have to do this with a larger site, I'll be way better off using one of those programs.
Does anyone know of a good site downloader? I'd prefer that it have the capabilities of downloading either all or just specified file types, saving relative locations, and limiting downloads to one or more specified domains. And free would be nice, though I'd probably be willing to pay as much as $50 or so if I had to.
