    Does the current version support filtering? Specifically, I have hundreds of megabytes of data to download. I need to retain the directory structure BUT I only need about 30% of the files in each directory. Their filenames are consistent so I was hoping to create some sort of filter like "LA*" and drag the entire directory structure over to my desktop. I've looked through the message board and the various settings in Fetch and have come up dry. Can anyone out there walk me through this?

    No, Fetch does not have that sort of filtering feature. You could write an AppleScript to do the transfer, but it would be fairly complicated since it would have to recreate the folder download logic.

    I'll take this as a request for such a feature.
