Download files with automator (2 posts)

    I'm trying the new automator feature and I can't figure out how to download files from a specific folder to a folder on my computer.
    I would think it should word like this:
    1. Get Specified Fetch Items (pointing to the right folder)
    2. Get Fetch Folder Contents
    3. Download Fetch Items.

    This sequence gives me an error:
    "Fetch got an error: Fetch could not get "fetch" because the FTP server encountered an error accessing a file or folder. (If you entered a file name, folder name, or URL, check that it is correct.) (-30004)"

    If I put Get Selected Fetch Items between 1 and 2 and between 2 and three eveything seems to work but the files are not downloaded.

    Am I missing something or are the Automator features still buggy? It would be very handy to make a backup, archive, and upload sequence.

    While the Automator features are still being developed and we have released them as part of the Fetch public beta for testing feedback, what you are doing should work.

    The error you're getting sounds like a server error instead of an Automator error. Can you download the contents of this folder when you use the Fetch application directly (connect to the server with the application, select the folder, and click the Get button), or do you get the same error when you try?
