Applescript File List (3 posts)

    We are using Fetch to add files to a backup server. All files from a previous month get deleted. I need to grab a file list from the transfer window, repeat thru them and figure out the date created stuff, and delete some subset of files...

    Can someone let me know the syntax for getting a file list from the transfer window?

    This will give you the names of all the items in the file list of the front window:

    tell application "Fetch"
    set itemNames to name of every remote item of transfer window 1
    end tell
