Hey Paul. I'm seeing how I can set it up, as HTTrack is configured a bit differently than creating your own html pages and saving each page in individual folders. I see just an index page but when I use that page locally on my harddrive the pages on the forum load up. I will have to see how it uploads to ftp, and if it works correctly. Otherwise, I could dropbox it and have others download the folder at their leisure.
I also backed up the old forum a few days before it closed, and it seemed to work OK off-line. HOWEVER, my old PC has died, typing this on my new one, but I don't think it was a hard-disc crash, I think it's a power supply issue internally. Due to other issues at present, (mum's in hospital) I haven't had time to dig into it, but if the disc is OK, I will recover the data one way or another. I'll let you know when I do.
