Help with warning on overwriting server file with same name (5 posts)

    I seem to have an issue. Why does Fetch not warn me when I am uploading a file that already exists on the server? It just overwrites the file with no warning or anything. This is very bad. How do I fix?

    Thanks,

    Jake

    Hi Jake,

    We're sorry, but Fetch doesn't offer an overwrite warning when uploading. (We do have an option for preventing overwrites when downloading.)

    While the vast majority of Fetch users want files with the same name automatically replaced when uploading (because they are often uploading newer versions of those files), we understand this may not be suitable for everyone, and we may offer this as an option in the future - however, we do not have such an option now.

    Thanks,

    I really hope you offer this in the future. I may not have purchased this application if I'd known about this lack of a feature.

    Since I administer several sites I panic a little every time I go to upload an index file.
