Hi, Firstly wonderful program.  I had worked through a few others - shareware
and all - before comming across this one that actually downloaded the site I
wanted.  Lots of links with query strings in them which HTTrack coped with
correctly identifying the file type etc.  However, one strange behaviour.
I have set "HideQueryString" in the Options Build and the first time I
download a new site it stores the files (nearly all .pdf files actually) with
part of their query string (so very long file name). If I straight away do
another run taking the *update_existing_download option it downloads all the
files again BUT this time without the query string. Then when the download
finishes it correctly deletes the old version as I dont have
DoNotPurgeOldFiles ticked,

So does the job just question why it needs two hits - or more correctly can I
set an option to only use one hit. Oh yes running Windows graphical version
3.413.
Cheers again for such a useful program.
