This feature lets you download required files that are specified with filters, (for example all pictures or audio files from a web site), subsets or complete web sites for mirroring or offline browsing.
 
This is a simple four step wizard located under download menu. Follow the details of the process here and try to do it:

The first step, you have to specify the name of the new project, the website to be grabbed and project template and authorization (if needed). If you need to download all pictures, video or audio files from a website, or download a complete web site, you may select the appropriate template. Project templates make it easy to start your projects quickly, because all required settings will be made automatically.
 
In the second step, you will choose where to save the project files and some other options such as overwrite existing files, convert links for offline browsing and so on. You can save each file to a folder according to the category of the file. If "Overwrite existing files" box is not checked, the grabber will characterize any files with the same name using underline or number. The third step lets you add explorer filters such as website exploration filter levels that will be included. The last step allows you to set file filters (types you want to include or exclude, hide duplicates and many other). 
 
Finally, the program will explore the website using the set filters till the whole process is complete. The process may need long time according to the website and filters chosen. The progress and statistics can be checked. The tree on the left side shows the site structure according to links and to folders. You can see the entire list of found files on a page or in a folder. 
 
The toolbar has the following buttons: "Start Exploring ", "Stop Exploring", "Check All Files", "Uncheck All Files", "Start Downloading the checked files", "Stop Downloading the checked files", "Add checked files to the main IDM list and to the download queue", and "Show Grabber Statistics". 
 
You can check all required files for downloading and start downloading them immediately or add them to the main IDM list. The program allows you to get back to a previous page of the Grabber wizard, for example to change settings or filters, etc. After doing all changes you want, simply go forward to resume exploring a site or downloading files.
