    I work in an environment where we download files from our FTP directly onto a Windows 2000 server. This has worked well under MacOSX 10.2.3 and 10.2.4. However since I upgraded to OSX10.2.5, the results of the downloads are now almost always corrupt! If I download instead to my local hard-drive and then transfer the file up to the server it works. Has anyone else experienced this problem or have any ideas on how to resolve it?

    Thanks,

    -Jeremy

    I haven't seen that problem. Do you have any information on the nature of the corruption? Are you doing the transfer by opening two connections in Fetch, and dragging between the two windows? It might be useful to see the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after a corrupted transfer.

    Thanks,

    I have a situtation where by if I use Fetch on my Mac (using OS X 10.2.4) and drag the files (even if they have been zipped or stuffed) onto my desktop they are no longer recognizable on my Mac. The very same files downloaded with the same version of Fetch onto a Mac running Classic, the files (even though their icon's are not correct) will open in their respective applications.

    The IT support where I am, indicates that there are no problems with the settings on the server end.

    Any suggestions?

    Currently, I have to download everything on a machine that I don't use and transfer to my OS X mac.

    When you say that the files aren't recognizable on your Mac, do you mean that double-clicking the file doesn't work? Have you tried dropping a .sit file downloaded with Fetch onto StuffIt Expander?

    Thanks,

    Okay, just got a corrupted transfer. No, I don't drag the file through the finer, I use the "get file" button. This is an .sea file posted on our FTP. The resulting file is unable to be opened in Stuffit Expander. If I download to the local drive everything is ducky.

    Here's the log...

    Another followup. Opened up the two "sea" files in BBEdit to try to see if there was any noticable difference. The file downloaded to my local desktop had a readable "header" which listed it as a Stuffit Archive. The same file downloaded to the Win2K server showed the header as binary data.
    Again, this used to work under 10.2.4.

    JeremyH:

    That sounds like a problem with the way 10.2.5 talks to the Windows 2000 server volume that you've mounted. Fetch doesn't know whether it's saving a download to a local hard disk or a mounted server -- the OS makes them appear the same to applications like Fetch.

    Could you post or email (to bb @ fetchsoftworks.com) the different headers you see in BBEdit?

    Thanks,

    FYI, there's a report on Macintouch today about a similar corruption problem with 10.2.5 and Windows 2000 servers:
