    Apologies if this is old hat...

    I just tried a Mirror Upload in Fetch 4.0.1 with the option to delete stray files on the remote server selected. Fortunately I was watching what it was doing because it got it wrong!

    Instead of checking a folder a/b and then changing to a/c and checking that it decided it wanted to look at a/b/c instead and when it wasn't there it merrily started uploading files frm the local a/c to it.

    For what it is worth FTP server on the remote end is Troll FTPD (which is a shame really but who wants an FTP server that supports ascii mode or can talk to Adobe Golive properly anyway ;-) ).

    The mirror upload was started immediately after one without the delete stray files option selected.

    Thanks for the report -- this is a known bug, and on my list to be fixed.

    I just got bitten by this bug. It, plus the fact that uploaded files' dates are always set to the time they were uploaded, makes the Mirror/Upload option far less then useful. Please: fix this soon, or make it clear to users that it doesn't work.

    The bug is fixed in Fetch 4.0.2b1, which is available for testing from http://getfetch4.com/Fetch_4.0.2b1.sit .

    I don't know a way around having the modification dates on the server match the date/time of upload; there's no FTP command for changing modification dates. One alternative would be to update the local modification times to match what they are on the server, but that would probably surprise a lot of people.

    Thanks,
