    Looking for a way to automatically download files from our FTP site and place them in a folder on our desktop. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this?

    Hi,

    You can use AppleScript or Automator to automate downloads with Fetch 5.7.7, which will work on Mojave but not on Catalina or Big Sur. Unfortunately, Fetch 5.8.2, which does work on Catalina and Big Sur, does not have AppleScript or Automator support.

    Thanks,
