uploading of large files not working (4 posts)

    I'm trying to upload some larger Photoshop files to a server (anywhere from 2MB to over 10MB) and I keep running into an issue where the file doesn't display properly after a supposedly succesful transfer. Instead of seeing the newly uploaded file name, I see the name for the temporary file name used during the transfer. This can be seen in the transcript text below.

    What's odd is that I don't experience this problem on Fetch 4.0.3. It's just on either of the version 5 apps that I get this "error."

    I'm running OS 10.3.9, and (currently) Fetch 5.1.

    Please help! :)

    Hi Dana,

    When you use the Put command, change the setting of the "If a file already exists:" menu to "Replace existing file". Do not use "Pick a different name".

    (When you have "Pick a different name" selected, Fetch asks the server to assign the file a unique name to avoid replacing any existing files. Unfortunately the name the server picks is often gibberish.)

    Let us know if this does not fix the problem.

    Thanks,

    Well that was easier than I thought it'd be. :)
    That worked great.

    thanks very much,
