Pamyat Naroda is a unique site. I do not think that there are similar websites in the world with so many documents.
The Canadian site is even better. Also with a impressive mass of documents, not only Canadian proper but also everything they got cc-ed of from Americans and British.

But the site at any time may cease to exist and close, despite the financing of the state. There are a lot of things held up by enthusiasm.(...)
There are several cases downloaded from there, so if anyone needs or is interested, write me.
I believe several people already "scrapped" the site, ie made a systematic download of everything there is.

Is your proposal commercial?

I doubt that there are 'complete' copies in private hands. They might be 80-90% complete. New material is being added all the time and without a release schedual, you would need to scan the site regularly. If they are using dynamic links, then you would need to compare the actual files instead of the link addresses. Someone, I know was trying to download all the files and they had around 25 TB of material.

My greatest worry, is that the site will close unexpectedly. I try and keep an updated catalogue of the files I need for my research but it is still a pain just checking on the 10 - 20,000 pages of documents that interest me.

Even less. About 50% of operative records cost me 28 Tb. Hardly too much personalities have similar HDD capacities.

It's enough to scan annually. No need to do this every month.
The problem is they have changed their search engine and one need to make a special research to learn how to get access to it.

Probably it was me ))

Moreover they quite often delete some files from access without any informatiopm about this.
