A recent addition to my list.
A lot of work there sourcing and saving that lot.
A lot I wouldn't be without plus some new ones to try.
Thanks Pesala for all your work.

This free utility is all I need for managing the files on my server. I'm not sure what’s new in this latest update. One can now change the default font used for the display of the directory listings - I'm not sure if one could do that before.
Well worth the 644K download if you need a simple to use FTP program, without all the bells and whistles.
Thank you for all that! No doubt will come in useful.
BTRWizard (714K) click here This free utility quickly search and replaces multiple text or html files to replace one text string with another. Worked fine for me on the first attempt.
Please ignore the other resolved thread. This is the most recent edition of my freeware links. I forgot to update my bookmark.
click here This utility will make a local copy of a website.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This kind of program puts a heavy load on the bandwidth for the webhost. Consider carefully whether you really need to use it at all.
However, if you do really need the entire website, it can save a lot of time and effort. I needed a website with 3,858 pages (23 Mbytes). Downloading that lot manually was not an option. With this utility it took about fifteen minutes. Now I can search the site offline and add my own links if necessary.
Useful to know,will Add to my postings for Ref.
Tks A lot :-))
Thanks Pesala, plenty of useful stuff and some new ones I have not used yet.
