File too Big? (1 post)

    Just upgraded (and registered!) from vers. 3.0.3 to 4.0.2

    I regularly use Fetch to download and upload fairly large .bin or .hqx files, generally between 400MB - 700 MB. Always worked fine in vers. 3.0.3 with no problems, however attempting an upload in 4.0.2 I get a Fetch error message which says: "File is too large to be encoded in the specified upload format."

    If I stuff the file down to about 230 MB, it works fine, but I'm trying to avoid the 20 minutes of stuffing and unstuffing at each end.

    What gives? Am I missing something in the preferences, or has Fetch changed and can no longer handle large files?
    If so, what is the file size cut-off, and can I change it?
    Should I revert to Fetch 3.0.3 in Classic (using OSX 10.2, 1 GB RAM)

    Help!
