Automatic is adding BIN extension (4 posts)

    I just upgraded to Fetch 5 from 4. In my previous edition, I could upload using Automatic as the format option and it would not change filename extensions.

    I am uploading a Stuffit archive from a Mac laptop to a Mac server. The file being uploaded is named xxx.sit. It arrives on the server as xxx.sit.bin

    What should the correct preference setting be to avoid this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    In Fetch 5, choose Preferences from the Fetch menu, and then click on the Upload tab.

    Make sure the "Add filename extension when uploading MacBinary files" checkbox is unchecked.

    Then try uploading again.

    If this does not fix the problem, let us know and we will investigate further.

    Thanks,

    Thanks, Scott. I was not expecting such an immediate and authoritative reply. Excellent; thanks.

    I've been using Fetch for years and years, and I realize some of the settings are necessary even though I don't fully comprehend how they operate.

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    You're welcome.

    The new, much expanded help in Fetch 5 documents all the settings, if you're ever looking at the preferences and wondering what one is for. :)

    But we're happy to answer questions too!

    Best,
