Subject: Programme failed to mirror

I am completely new to HTTrack and this type of specialist software.

I have just attempted to mirror a website, but the process failed.  The error
report that was produced after the final stage is reproduced below, followed
by the Log File. 

So far as I can tell, I followed the HTT website step-by-step guide (there are
minor differences between the screen shots and my current programme).  I find
Fred Cohen’s User’s Guide almost totally incomprehensible.  At
FAQs/Troubleshooting, the closest query to mine is ‘When I use HTTrack,
nothing is mirrored (no files) What’s happening?’.  As recommended in the
Answer given: I have checked that the URL is typed correctly, and that it
still exists, but cannot follow the remaining advice. There appears that no
‘hts-err.txt’ file was produced, unless this is the Mirror Error message

Can someone please assist.  If the problem is due to this website having
‘anti-mirroring’ protection to prevent it being copied, please let me know
how to get round the problem.


HTTrack has detected that the current mirror is empty. If it was an update,
the previous mirror has been restored.
Reason: the first page(s) either could not be found, or a connection problem
=> Ensure that the website still exists, and/or check your proxy settings!
