Yes, but the doit.log and new.dat/ndx/lst files are ONLY
found in the /000406/hts-cache/ subdir.

Sorry, but I have no idea how this could have happened.

I've never used the commandline version, sticking only with
WinHTTrack. So I'm experiencing these problems with the
Windows GUI version.

[Snipped instructions for commandline -thanks]

I'm still confused by this. Following is the hts-log.txt
from the first and initial mirror 000406. I'll appreciate it
if you could let me know if there's anything in it that
indicates a bug or some stupid user error on my part:

As I said before, I kept most options at their default
values, changing only the User Agent and a few other minor
(I hope) things.

Does WinHTTrack keep a record of the last used Base Path or
does it default to any folder/subdir? I'm not sure if it
uses the Windows Registry for this.
