    I have a web magazine made up of many multi-page sites so I have an ever-growing number of folders and files stored. I have plenty of web space but I have been having more and more trouble connecting to various directories with Fetch. Sometimes I can open the main directory but not the sub directories. Sometimes a shortcut will help, sometimes it won't. The dog will run endlessly until I quit Fetch. If I re-launch and try again enough times it will usually eventually work. Having to try over and over to upload files is driving me crazy. Why does it have trouble sometimes and not others? I tried Cute FTP and had similer problems. Could it have something to do with the huge number of files I have stored?

    I'm using Fetch 4.03 on a Mac G3 with OS 9.2.

    Thanks.

    Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you get one of these errors? My guess is that the number of files isn't the issue, but the transcript will hopefully make things clearer.

    Was the dog running endlessly at that point? When that happens it's probably sufficient to press Stop or close the Fetch widnow; you shouldn't have to quit Fetch.

    Yes, the dog runs endlessly. If I click stop the cursor becomes a watch but nothing else happens. If I close the window and retry it always acts the same. I sometimes quit and relaunch Fetch in hopes that the fresh start might help, but it doesn't seem to matter much.

    If you're seeing this problem in Cute FTP as well it probably doesn't have anything to do with your FTP client. That leaves the server and your Internet connection as possible culprits. You might ask Bizland or your ISP if they have any suggestions. I'm sorry that there isn't more I can do to help.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the info. What puzzles me is why the problem comes and goes and occurs more often in some directories than others.
