    When a client connects to my server, which is running win2k, there is a 1kb duplicate of every file. Is there a setting in Fetch to ignore these files? Clients have been downloading the wrong files accidentally about half of the time.
    Thanks in advance - Jason

    Do the duplicate files have names that are similar to the "real" file name? Is there a pattern to the way they are named?

    It sounds like they represent the resource forks or other Mac-specific information of the files.

    Thanks,

    Jim - they have the exact same names as the "actual" files. I cannot delete them either.

    Could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu and post the contents after going to a folder with these duplicate files and choosing "Refresh File List" from the Directories menu?

    Thanks,

    Jim - here are the transcripts when I navigate into one of the folders. I didn't copy the whole transcript as it is quite long.

    Are the duplicate files the ones starting with ._ ? You can configure Fetch to not list files starting with a dot -- check "Omit dot files" in the Misc. section of Preferences.
