    I am using a Macintosh G4 with "Fetch" 4.0.1 for Mac OS 9.2 .
    We are connected via Fetch to a Sun Server to deposit our data on a available Volume. This has worked fine and good for what we are doing.
    My question now is.
    Is there a Apple Script available or is Fetch "scriptable" to automate the system to automatically connect to the Server at, say 22h00, and than copy the data to the volume on the server. Similar to an automatic backup solution, like Retrospect.

    Thank you

    Fetch is scriptable, and what's more it is recordable. That means you can press the Record button in the Script Editor, perform some Fetch operations manually, and a script to automate those actions will be recorded for you.

    Fetch does not have a built-in script scheduler, so you would want to use something like iDo Script Scheduler, which is available for download from http://www.powerkey.com .
