    I have a hopefully easy question. Is there a way within Fetch to assign permissions to a directory and automatically have all files and folders within that directory inherit the same permissions?

    We don't have that feature built into Fetch, but we've written a script called Recursive Set Permissions that will do the trick. It's one of the Fetch 5 Example Scripts, which you can download from

    Please let me know if Recursive Set Permissions doesn't do what you need.
