Anybody know of a free app or a technique that will save all of the media to your local hdd from the web?  I want to save all the files at , and then prune out what I don't want, rather than opening each one, viewing, saving, yadda yadda....any thoughts?

    Trying to think of a way to do what you said but right-clicking on the link and selecting "save target as" would be quicker than opening and then saving.

    Have you access to a server running unix/linux ?

    $ wget -m --no-parent

    then download via FTP only the files you want.

    you can then

    $ rm -Rf

    other *windows* apps include teleport pro and Blue Squirrel's "Grab-a-site"

    I use this to take copies of customer websites when I am asked to take them over or produce new pages.

    It is a nice tool, walk away while it does it's thing, and you get a local copy of the website on you hd, you can pick the start location and how many pages deep it should go.

    Hope it is what you are looking for.
