My PC HDD died and I need to download the files from the previously created website to creat a new project.

How do I do this please?

Malcolm, sadly WX5 cannot import a generated website.

If you have an old iwzip file of the project this is the easiest way to recreate the site, other than this you will need to start again and you can copy and paste content from the online site into the new project

copy any photos or images and save locally

copy and paste text from the online site into individual text objects in the new project

use the ftp functionality of wx5 to copy any files required can quickly restore photos/images/documents/pdf's etc from the hosting to a local directory.

Malcolm, in case lightening strikes twice, please visit step 5, export project and create an iwzip file after every major session (I add YYDD to file name). Move to or save to external device for absolute safety (good use for one drive?)
