Duplicate Files While Mirroring (3 posts)

    I'm trying out the mirroring function and am having some difficulty with Fetch duplicating files that have not been modified.

    After the initial upload of data, Fetch is uploading all the files again (regardless if they have been changed), this time adding a .1 extension.

    How can I omit this and only upload the files that I have changed?

    That does sound like unexpected behavior for the Mirror command; that's definitely not what it's supposed to do.

    We'd like some more information to help diagnose the problem. Could you please do the following?

    * Quit Fetch.
    * Open Fetch again.
    * Try Mirroring a folder (do what you need to do to reproduce the problem).
    * Go to the Window menu, and choose Fetch Transcript.
    * Copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and email the transcript to:

    bugs at fetchsoftworks dot com

    (It's likely to be kind of long.)

    We'll take a look and see if we can figure out what's going on.

    Sure. I'm out of the office for a few days, but will get to it when I return.
