How Reliable Is Reliable Enough? by Jim Matthews
I think of Fetch as a reliable FTP client.
For twenty years we’ve tuned and tweaked its code to handle new situations, and users regularly tell us that Fetch has worked when other alternatives didn’t. Nonetheless, from time to time we have received a particular and troubling sort of user report.Learn more
