    I have some files in my main directory and want to move them to a subdirectory without downloading them, deleting them from the main directory, and re-uploading to the other directory. How do I do this?

    I'm using Fetch 3.0.3.

    Dragging and dropping does nothing, even opening both directories in different windows and trying to drag and drop between them doesn't work. Also tried re-naming the files like this: newdirectory/index.html, but all it did was rename the file, it didn't force it into the new directory.

    I'm sure there is a really simple answer to this, but I can't find it.

    Help? Please?

    I would recommend upgrading to Fetch 4.0.2; it does support moving files and directories using drag and drop. In 3.0.3 the only way is to use the rename command, and then refresh the file list.

    You can download Fetch 4.0.2 from http://fetchsoftworks.com .

    Thanks,

    I have Fetch 4.02. I also can't figure out how to move files from one directory to another. Can you explain.

    Thank You

    Fetch 4.0.3 is now the latest release; you can download it from http://fetchsoftworks.com

    If you have a file named "myfile", and in the same directory you have a directory named "mydirectory", you can move myfile into mydirectory by dragging the myfile icon onto the mydirectory icon (which looks like a folder).

    If you want to move myfile up one directory level, drag it to the open folder icon above the left side of the file list.

    Does that help?

    Thanks,
