    Does Fetch 4.0.3 support long filenames over 31 characters on Mac OS9.1 ?

    I can see these extra long file names on my Mac using ZipIt 2.2 but as soon as they are unzipped they get truncated and shortened.

    I am having to trawl through all the php files that make up the programs and updates and put them right. Its driving me mad
    Anyone have any clue on how I can get over this?

    Fetch supports long file names wherever the OS supports them, i.e. on Mac OS 9 and later, on Mac OS Extended volumes. It sounds like that version of ZipIt does not support long file names. You might try expanding the files with StuffIt Expander 7 (available from http://www.stuffit.com) or some other tool.

    Note that you won't be able to see long file names in the Finder on Mac OS 9.

    Thanks,
