    I am using Fetch for the first time, though I've had it for a while. It seems awfully slow considering I am on Broadband. I am using OX 10.3 (Panther). Is there somethng I should be doing to speed this up somehow?

    What sort of byte/second numbers are you getting on uploads? And do you know what sort of upload speeds your broadband provider promises (upload speeds are typically slower than download speeds).

    Thanks,

    I likewise have seen my upload speed is about 10% of my upload broadband speed. This is on professional pre-press shop ftp servers, too. What dictates these speed issues?

    I am experiencing the same here. And I'm on a very fast network our university. Using Mac OS 10.3.

    I have occasionally noticed that Fetch 4.0.3 stops in the middle of uploading a folder of images. The GUI indicates that it is uploading one of the images but it sits on the same image for far too long (e.g., the most recent was 5 minutes for a 6,043 byte image). I am on wireless network with a 1 MB upstream connection. The ftp host I am connecting to is on multiple T3s.

    The GUI indicates that throughput on the upload is 6,xxx bytes per second, which to me means that the image should have uploaded and just gone on.

    After 5 minutes, I selected the STOP button in the GUI and it indicated that it accepted the input and then worked on cancelling the upload for about 3 minutes and then Fetch crashed. I submitted a crash report to Apple.

    I have noticed this behavior almost exclusively with folders of images or a base folder that contains other folders. It's almost like Fetch is having difficulty traversing the directory structure on the local computer. That's my guess anyway.

    Hope this helps.

    The next time this happens could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window? We're trying to improve this situation in the next release.
