You're wrong - httrack is not mainly "free" (as in "free 
beer") but mainly "free" (as in "freedom"). Besides very 
often "free" products are much better than "non free" ones 
(take projects such as Apache, Sendmail, PHP ..)

There are some missing features in httrack (and possibly 
remaining bugs), but the goal is clearly to offer to users 
all features they are expecting from this kind of software.

Again, httrack is not the best tool to handle ftp files 
(especially for reget) ; if all files are located in one 
server, you'd better to mirror it directly using an ftp
