Downloading a whole website

I need to download a whole website written in ASP. I found many applications to do this. Does anybody have any recommendations?

The "best" program is the one that works the best for that particular website.  Some great programs like WinHTrack do not work at all well for some websites, but are perfect for others.  Others like Joc Spider and Black widow are good for "difficult" sites, but are more or less useless for others.  THere is no single one that works for all, or even most websites.  You will have to equip yourself with an arsenal of at LEAST 5 programs, chosen from a typical google search based on what you want to pay, and try them PER site.

Remember, it is a violation of copyright to actually use another person's website or web pages to make your own.  The point of downloading is to learn how others do it.  After that, you have a moral, ethical and legal obligation to design your own, not plagiarize someone else's.  It is very easy for peole to tell if their site has been cloned, and many commence immediate prosecution of the violator. But I am sure you know this already.

Yes I know there are numerous tools. My question was, which one/s is/are recommended?
Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Thanks for that detailed reply. I am not doing this to copy a site. It is for the site owner actually. They need to reproduce their site on CD.
That is a whole different issue.  Use their FTP login to login to their site, and with a decent file manager, you can donwload ALL directories from the site, and save them to hard disk, and then cut the lot to a CD/DVD

Good point. Question is, how would the ASP pages work, if there is no connection to the Internet?
