No "Duplicate" command? (2 posts)

I need to make a copy of a folder on a remote server. According to Fetch Help, there's a "Duplicate" command, but I can't find it. It's not in the contextual menu when I click on the folder; it's not in any of the application menus.
It's a very large folder, so I want to do it all server-side.

Unfortunately the FTP protocol does not have a server-side duplicate command, so the best Fetch can do is duplicate the folder by downloading and re-uploading each file. To do that you would option-drag the folder into another folder. It will take a while for a large folder, but it should work.
There is a contextual menu Duplicate command for individual files, but again, it works by downloading and re-uploading.
