Pane view, overwrite... (2 posts)

    Hello,

    Am testing out Fetch right now...

    Would like to see a pane view, like in any Mac finder window, we can choose an icon, list or column style. This would be a definate plus! You cannot beat a column view for ease of navigaion.

    Also, am I missing something, but rather than overwriting files with the same name when copying to my HD from my server, Fetch creates a new folder with the same name and number next to it. I could not find any option to overwrite the folder (I would want a warning of course)... this seems a bit strange, to me...

    Anyway, I look forward to hearing from you!

    Hi,

    Thanks for the feedback. A column view is something we are considering for future versions.

    No, currently you cannot overwrite folders when downloading; the behavior you're seeing is normal for Fetch.

    If you have a folder that you always want to update with the latest information from the server, you should try Fetch's Mirror command, which will make the contents of a local folder match the contents a server folder (or vice versa). You can save a Mirror document so that you can update the local folder by just double-clicking a document. For more information, see the Mirror window topic in Fetch Help (or click on the link here).

    Thanks,
