Aaron's WebVacuum lets you download files from web sites with ease in just a few simple steps. Enter the URL of the site you'd like to download from. Choose the directory you'd like to save the files to on your hard drive. Aaron's WebVacuum will scan the website and queue all of the files it finds so you can choose only those you want to download. You have the ability to download all of the pages from a site, or you can choose to download files found within levels from the original URL.





The program's many features allow you to customize the program to suit your needs, which may change from site to site, depending on what you want to download. One of the most useful features is the ability to define which file extension types you want to download. It's a snap to add and remove file extensions to the list. You can also stop and resume the download process whenever you want. If your computer crashes, Aaron's WebVacuum will automatically resume downloading where it left off! Bookmark your favorite sites, view your images inslideshows, filter file names using wild cards, drag and drop functionality and much more! There are even add- ons available for download if you visit their site. Check out this nifty piece of software today and find out for yourself why we gave it a 5 cow rating!
