Tutorial by developer (Webmaster Tools).
A1 Website Download is a web crawler which can save a browsable copy of a website locally, similar to HTTrack. It differs from HTTrack in being a newer and commercial software with more options.
With more options the userface is also more complex, but in most cases the default settings will provide satisfactory copies of the websites one wishes to preserve. The developer offers a large support section as well as video tutorials for different deeds and purposes.
A1 Website Download can download websites significantly faster than HTTrack, wherefore it is especially relevant for preservation of large websites or websites that are updated (changed) frequently.
A free version with some limitations to functionality is available.
