What you want is actually the very thing that wget is designed to do. All
you have to do is simply (here I am assuming a Windows computer for some
strange reason):

1. Open a command prompt (cmd.exe on windows)
2. execute: cd c:\
3. execute: wget -r "http://your-domain.com";

Wget will now download all files from that domain into a directory named
your-domain.com so it will be named after the domain that you download. All
you now have to do is to right click that folder in the file explorer and
select to create a zip archive of this folder and you should have the very
same file that your friend provided earlier.

Perhaps you need to cd to a different location in step #2 (I don't know
WIndows that well), like perhaps "cd desktop", other who might know Windows
better might fill in here.
