Thanks for making HTTrack available.  It's a great program.

I have a question regarding when to use "Update existing download" or
"Continue Interrupted download."

Last night I had started mirroring a website that is about 2 GB.  When I had
copied about 1.5 GB, my internet connection went down for a while. The end of
the log file contains perhaps a couple hundred messages like:
"23:19:54	Error: 	"No data (connection closed)" (-4) after 1 retries at link"   and at the end of the log I have the message:
"HTTrack Website Copier/3.45-3 mirror complete in ..."

I'm not sure which of the two above options to use.  I looked at you
documentation and forum, but I am still somewhat confused.  My best guess is
that continue interrupted is for downloads that the user has stopped.  Since
the download "completed normally" as far as it was concerned, then I'm not
sure if this is considered an interrurpted download.  On the other hand, since
the files have not changed on the website, I don't know if an update will pull
them down.

I figure there is a best approach here, but it's not clear to me which of the
two options it is.  If I have two, I can start the download over.  I don't
mind the time it would take, I just don't want to waste the site owner's
bandwidth if I can avoid it.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
