    After successfully uploading for months, I suddenly am unable to upload files to a website server. The dog just runs until it times out. I am able to download files and navigate the directory - just can't upload. Passive FTP is checked. I haven't installed any new software or changed any settings that I can recall. I have a firewall but it doesn't prevent anything outgoing, only incoming. I had a hard drive error message recently, (There is a problem with the disk Macintosh HD. Some information may have been lost. Check any recently-used files for data loss, and use a disk-repair program on the disk.) but after running Disk FirstAid it now verifies with no errors. I've trashed Fetch preferences and re-booted. I've shut down and restarted the network router. Is there anything else that could be affecting Fetch if I lost some data? I don't know what else to try. Something has to have changed since the last time I used Fetch successfully...I just can't figure out what.

    Can you upload to other servers? You can try at

    User ID: (leave blank)
    Password: (leave blank)

    Go into the "incoming" directory. You'll see the message "Permission denied" in the file list area but you can ignore that.

    Do uploads there work? If not, how far do they get?
