    The ftp server I download from has a 60 minutes limit. It cuts me off every 60 minutes. Right now I'm using fetch, and if I manually stop the download before 60 munites is up, the partial file is saved to my harddrive, if I don't manually disconnect and have the server time me out, then the partial file is lost. Am I doing something wrong? Please help.

    Fetch 4.0.2 should save the partial download whether the transfer is interrupted by you or by the server. Are you running Fetch 4.0.2?

    Thanks,

    I might be using an earlier version, I have to check on that. So only 4.0.2 saves the imcomplete download due to server time out, am I right?

    Yes. Fetch 4.0.2 saves the state of a download every few minutes, so that even if your computer crashes you should be able to resume the download.
