Try to uncheck the "Update hack" option. If the files are still not updated,
check your server's settings (and the httrack traces, by enabling "activate
debugging mode" in "experts only")

No - this option is potentially dangerous (not using the cache is something
not really tested)

No - because httrack has to rebuild the internal file tree strcture (which is
not saved, and which can change even with only one file being modified)

It will update it if a new version is available.

Note that this option has been enhanced in recent 3.33-beta releases (if the
file disappears remotely, it is kept AND still linked to other pages)
