How much space would pc advisor web site end up as? In gb (My guess 100gb)

  lotvic 23:00 23 Mar 2011

You are on mobile internet 1gb/month package aren't you? So not feasible even if the website in question allows to download it.

... you USED to be able to do this with IE ?

Don't bother, you can't save our site in its entirety. Forum pages are generated dynamically, they don't exist in recognisable form until you call them from the server and the databases.

Why would you want to save a whole site anyway?

Very Big

If I need to save the odd page or several I use the FF add-on "scrapbook" which [ FE's caveat about dynamic content excepted ] works very well - for me any ways

Hello FE

I'm quite interested in plants.If I could 'snapshot' a good gardening web-site, save it to disk then I would be able to access it quickly, possibly on my smartphone anywhere I am.This would be very handy.My smartphone capacity is 8gb.
What size is the BBC gardening website for example?
