Thanks for your answers,

I understand limitations of the web server i want to grab,
nevertheless is there an issue for httrack to keep similar
names, even when updating, without using %q option?
I would apreciate something like that:
Info: engine: transfer-status: link added: (or updated) ->

(the index file item on the server never changes, except
when its related to a new file)

It would be convenient because the '42' item is really
meaningfully relating to the date order of the corresponding
file (%q hash value is not). I use a "Visual Basic for
Excel" program of my own for some statistical and graphical
purposes and an intuitive index file item is quite usefull
for users.

many thanks
