Automatic Remote Downloads (4 posts)

    Hello,

    My apologies in advance if this topic has been discussed at nausea already, if someone would be so kind to pass along a link to the correct location, then that's all I'd require and thank you very much, however, in the event that I'm one of the few who's dying under the many laborious downloads throughout any given day and needs some help with the following feature, here goes nothing!

    I was wondering if there's a way to setup a remote folder to automatically download to my Mac when someone uploads an item to it? I'm not looking for a mirrored folder feature, I'm only looking for a one way ticket on this. I understand that there are snippets of information in regards to setting up a Automator script to help with this, but I've been unable to set it up successfully. All of my work is done remotely through many FTP servers so having a feature like this, either built into the software or otherwise, would be a greatly appreciated helping hand to countless downloads throughout the day.

    Thanks you and have a nice day!

    Travis.

    Hi,

    The Fetch Example Scripts, which you can download from http://fetchsoftworks.com/fetch/download , includes a script called WatchServerFolder. It looks for files in a specified remote folder, downloads them, and then moves them into a subfolder (so they won't be downloaded again).

    Would you like to give it a try and let me know how it goes?

    Thanks,

    Jim Matthews

    Thanks for the quick response. These won't run on Mountain Lion, sorry, I neglected to mention that before! Are there updated versions somewhere?

    Travis.

    Oops! Sorry about that!

    Could you try downloading an updated copy from http://staging.fetchsoftworks.com/fetch/download/FetchExampleScripts.zip and let me know if it works?

    Thanks,
