Downloading Entire Website

I vaguely recall coming across an application that would spider an entire
website and would allow you to download it - for the purposes of replicating
it. Does anyone have a recommendation for such a tool (free preferably)?

Context: We are ending our relationship with  the company that we used for
marketing, and who designed and currently host our website. I would expect
them to hand us all the relevant source code, but just in case there is any
dispute I would like to be able to get my hands on the code if possible.
AFAIK, there is no DB backend or anything like that.

I'm not convinced we will have any problems with them, but somethings that
my colleagues have said, have led me to believe that we better not take any

[And yes, we do own the copyright!]

That fact that we dont have a backup of the site in the safe is probably the
least bizarre aspect of this whole situation. But c'est la vie!

Your point is..?

Just make sure there isn't any infinite recursion or never ending offsets or
you'll be in for a shock.
