    I was going to post this on Diehard Wolfers in the thread that I started about Yahoo groups being deactivated.  However, Diehard Wolfers is down at the moment.  You know that nothing can be added on or after October 28 to https://groups.yahoo.com/ .  I’m in Yahoo groups also for topics besides Wolfenstein.
     
    So, what’s the best web site archiving tool to use for Yahoo groups?

    EDIT: I also meant, "What's the best archiver tool to download all of the pictures at once in a Yahoo group?"  Diehard Wolfers is now back online and I think that I'll ask there too.

    In archiving these groups I used Python scripts that you probably want to employ if you want to grab some non-Wolf groups for yourself.

    https://archiveteam.org/index.php?title=Yahoo!_Groups#Python_Yahoo.21_Group_archivers

    They're advertised as fairly powerful, but only YahooGroups-Archiver worked as intended for me. The others either bugged out or appeared to work correctly while downloading nothing. YahooGroups-Archiver only downloads messages though, so I had to get files and photos by hand. This might not be feasible for some groups, so hopefully you can get one of the other two scripts running.

    I downloaded YahooGroups-Archiver and I think it's the file you told me to download.  I clicked on INSTALL and it says, "How do you want to open this file?"  Then what do I select?  If it matters to you, I don't know Perl.  Tomorrow is a day that I'm not scheduled to work, so I might spend the day trying to download Yahoo groups that I'm a member of.  I thought that I clicked the request for a download of my data from one of the Yahoo pages and it said that the download could take up to 30 days.

    I would like to apologize if I accidentally sound urgent since tomorrow is the last day to add to Yahoo groups before they are frozen.  I didn't mean to sound urgent.

    YahooGroups-Archiver is a Python script, therefore you need to install the latest Python release. Make sure it adds itself to the system PATH during installation. Then you run the script from the command line. The github page for the script includes a readme file with instructions for the correct syntax.

    Please look back at https://archiveteam.org/index.php?title=Yahoo!_Groups#Python_Yahoo.21_Group_archivers .  I think that I unconsciously confused the YahooGroups-Archiver from Python and Yahoo Group Archiver from Perl both into one archiving program.  I downloaded the Perl one.  No wonder I was confused.
     
    I think you meant the latest Python script at https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-380/ .

    The Perl script is outdated and won't work anyway, so please use the Python ones. Download Python from the link you posted, install it, then download and extract one of the Python archiving scripts and follow instructions for launching the script as per its github readme.
