Normally HTTrack downloads in this order:

scan root links for level 1
download  all level 1
scan level 1 links for level 2

scan level 2 links for level 3
download all level 3

So if you look at it like a tree, it gets the trunk, then all the main
branches, then all the smaller branches, then all the twigs, then all the

Is it possible to make it do the following:

So instead of finding all the directories first, and then getting their
contents, every time it sees a new directory, it gets all the contents first,
and if it finds a new directory in that directory, it gets all those contents

Ok, I think I've explained the same thing like three times already. I hope one
