    I recently logged in to my Fetch account and when I select a certain website to access the files I get the message: " 1 -al: No such file or directory"

    Here is the transcript:

    Fetch could not get the file list because the FTP server sent an unexpected response. (Check the Fetch Transcript window for more information.
    Server responded: “ 1 -al: No such file or directory”)

    Why is this happening....?

    Hi,

    To fix that problem I would recommend unchecking the "Use 'LIST -al' command to reveal hidden items" box in the Miscellaneous section of Fetch Preferences. Please let me know if that does not help.

    Thanks,

    Jim:
    That seems to have resolved the issue. Thank you!!! Will there be any files that won't be displayed when this setting is unselected?

    Depending on the server, it's possible that some dot files (files with names that start with a period) will not be shown.

    Thanks,
