Automator Help (3 posts)

    Hello, I have to upload 1-4 large video files every night to about 10 different FTP accounts. I can not send them all out at once because the connection usually fails when sending multiple files.

    Is there a way to use automator to take multiple folders and send to 10 different FTP's in succession?

    Please, please, please. It'll save me so much time not having to babysit uploads.

    Unfortunately, due to the way Automator works, it's not really possibly to use Fetch's Automator support to upload files to multiple servers.

    However, we do offer a multi-server upload AppleScript that might help you.

    You can download the script from our downloads page at:

    it's part of the "Fetch 5 Example Scripts" download (download the first version of that link if you're on Mac OS X 10.3 or later). After you've uncompressed the archive, find the "Multi-Server DropUpload" script. Double-click on it to get started with configuring it.

    The instructions in the script are a little minimal; please let us know if you need further assistance in setting it up.
