    It does not seem that Fetch supports file segmentation.

    Is that a feature that will be added at some point. Without it, download speeds are abysmal from my seedbox server.

    Hi Todd,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, and thanks for the feedback.

    Support for file segmenting as described in that article is not something we are currently planning to add to Fetch, but it's useful to hear that such a feature would be of interest to you.

    You can download (or upload) multiple files concurrently with Fetch by opening multiple different connection windows to the same server, and downloading different files from each one. Depending on your available bandwidth and the server's behavior, in certain situations this may allow you to download files faster than just downloading them one at a time (although that's not always the case).

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire
