HTTrack Website Copier Demo:
Saving Your ProStores HTML Pages & Images

This video tutorial illustrates how to use HTTrack to download and backup your ProStores pages in HTML as well as your design and product images. This is especially important for ProStores merchants who utilize the Multi-Image feature and don't have copies of their product image files on their computers (see Match ProStores Products with Image Files extracted with HTTrack).

In addition, merchants that added custom pages to the store using ProStores proprietary SSML code will find the HTML rendered versions of the pages useful in recreating them in a new platform as ProStores approaches its EOL on 1 February 2015.

If you have already removed your Dedicated Domain Name from your account you can still use the ProStores Shared URL, as found in the store admin's Server Settings (Store Settings > Server), e.g. store01.prostores.com/surpluscameragear

HTTrack Website Copier

HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility.

It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site's relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the "mirrored" website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.

WinHTTrack is the Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Seven release of HTTrack, and WebHTTrack the Linux/Unix/BSD release. See the download page.
