Fetch 5.6 keeps transfers moving by Jim Matthews

Etna, NH — Reliability is the watchword for Fetch 5.6, the latest version of the original Macintosh file transfer program, released today.

Transient errors or stalls can all too often cause a website update or large download to grind to a halt, wasting time and requiring tedious and error-prone manual intervention. Fetch 5.6 automatically resumes uploads, downloads, and mirror operations, to ensure that network glitches and server hiccups do not stand in the way of successful FTP or SFTP transfers.

Fetch 5.6 is a Universal binary, compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or later, including Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and can be downloaded from

Fetch 5.6 is free to try for 15 days, and a single-user license is $29. Upgrades are free for Fetch 5.5 users and customers who purchased Fetch after January 28, 2009; otherwise, upgrades are $10. Free licenses and upgrades are available for educational and charitable use.

  • I just download 5.6 and tested it by uploading the whole SugarCRM package on our website. Fetch 5.6 is the first FTP-client ever that has managed to upload the whole thing on one process, without any timeouts or errors. Don’t know what you did but it worked!

  • Fetch is the best FTP client!
    I tried the new Transmit (4) but that program is crap :S it’s very slow and can’t even see my hidden files!
    So i went over to Fetch :) never errors and it’s so fast!

  • Fantastic! This thing is lightning fast and rock solid. Works even better than the last version. I have used a few other FTP programs but this is by far the best out there, no question.
