Hi all - this is my first posting so please be gentle with me :wink:
Some how my local copy of my website has been corrupted.
My remote copy is fine and up and working.
What I want to do is to download the remote file in its entirety and overwrite the local file with it.
Suggestions please for the most straightforward way of doing this.
Thanks in advance.
NeilC

use your favorite FTP client, the DW one or another one and download all files directly on your local copy.

Thanks domedia but, due to my inexperience, I need to know exactly HOW I do what you suggest in DW8.
Cheers, NeilC

if you can see your files (Remote and Local) in Dreamweaver then select Remote view

select the top level directory of the tree structure in files explorer and click the arrow that points down (GET)

you may get a warning about getting the entire site but just ok it
