I don't know the admins. Can you let us know what those tools are? Maybe each of us that cares can download parts at a time and combine later.
Curious to know if these tools copy the whole website or thread-by-thread. With space constraints on peoples computers and/or servers that people might use, a thread-by-thread download might be the best approach. Also that way we can leave behind things like sandbox and off-topic content.
