RSYNC and SCP work over SSH while WGET works over HTTP.

However, if he can Log Into his "web presence" then rsync (there are 
clients for PCs) would be a good option.

Recursive wget works quite nicely. Look for the mirroring options. 
Experiment with a small subset of your tree to see how the directories 
map out.

Another way, assuming you CAN log into your Web Presence is to upload 
everything to Github and then clone it to your PC.

The Filezilla option seems nice too. There are probably many 
alternatives to that. In fact, go to alternativeto.net and type in "wget".
