Subject:   The Download Manager is a Hidden Gem

One aspect of DEVONThink Pro that seems to have been glossed over is the excellent Download Manager. This is great for capturing entire websites.


I've tried plenty of applications that claim to mirror sites, yet are hopeless for sites that employ links in javascript, PHP or ASPs. DEVONThink Pro's Download Manager handles such sites with ease. I've managed to capture a large part of a dotnetBB based forum of several thousand posts using this tool. No other utilities I've tried come close in this regard.


It can, however, create huge databases as a result so you need plenty of spare disk space. These large databases require regular optimisation to bring them down to size.
