    Hi there

    I have downloaded the new version of fetch, and on entering the ftp details, I am hit with a pop up window with the note:

    the settings cannot be used because an error has ocurred
    Mac OS error -60008

    I have been using fetch for ages, and haven't seen this error before. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    Does the problem still happen if you restart your Mac and try to use Fetch again?

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    This error may indicate a problem with the Mac OS X keychain, which Fetch uses to securely store the passwords for your shortcuts and recent connections.

    Please do the following to check for and repair problems with the keychain:

    * Quit Fetch, if it's running.
    * Open the Keychain Access application, which is in the Utilities folder inside your Applications folder.
    * Go to the Keychain Access menu, and choose Preferences.
    * Click on the "First Aid" tab.
    * Make sure both "Synchronize login keychain password" and "Set login keychain as default" are checked.
    * Then go to the Keychain Access menu, and choose Keychain First Aid.
    * In the password field of the Keychain First Aid window, enter your Mac OS X admin password (this should be the same as your Mac OS X login password).
    * Click the Repair radio button.
    * Click the Start button.
    * Once it's done, close the Keychain First Aid window.
    * Restart your Macintosh.

    Then try Fetch again.

    Let us know if you're still having problems after doing this.

    Thanks,
