In 'Set Options' | Spider tab, uncheck 'Update hack (limit 
retransfers)'.  That'll make winhttrack only download files 
with changed 'last-modified' values.  Whether this works or 
not depends on your webserver, because some (broken) 
webservers always indicate a file has changed whether or 
not it really has changed.

> 2. Can I still update site after deleting cache of IE?Yes, httrack has it's
own cache in the \hts-cache folder of 
your project save folder.  It needs the new.* and *.ini 
files in that folder for updates.

> 3. How can I set default options?From the project screen where you enter the
URLs and see 
the 'Set Options' button, click the menu item 'Preferences' 
and select 'Save Default Options'.

> Thanks for your advice.

Have fun,


P.S. I hope this saves Xaviar a little time that he can use 
for improving/bugfixing httrack further.  I suggest as 
Httrack users pitch in with the q/a in the forum as much as
