    Will Fetch auto reconnect and continue a transmission where it left off, if the connection is droppped?
    I'd love to go to sleep with confidence knowing my transmissions will be done when I wakre up :-)

    Fetch won't do that automatically, but you can write an AppleScript to do that. Let me know if you'd like help doing that.

    Thanks,

    Jim, any chance of getting some help on writing that script?

    Cheers

    Sure. Here's a script that you can edit (change the first line to have a real URL) and save as an application. When you drop files or folders on it Fetch will keep trying to upload them until it succeeds.

    property destUrl : "sftp://userid:@hostname/path/"

    on open these_items
    repeat with this_item in these_items
    repeat
    try
    with timeout of 3600 seconds
    tell application "Fetch"
    put into url destUrl item this_item
    end tell
    end timeout
    exit repeat
    end try
    end repeat
    end repeat
    end open

    Let me know if that meets your needs,
