Edit mode upload failed - where to get original file? (3 posts)

    I just tried to edit a file on the server directly through Fetch. It opened TextMate and I did necessary changes to a file. After saving it, Fetch started uploading it to the server, but that was unsuccessful. In meantime I closed TextMate.

    Can I recover the original file that's been temporary downloaded to my mac? Where does Fetch store temporary files for editing?

    Thanks a lot!

    Here's how I would find the file:

    * Choose a different text file in Fetch and click the Edit button to open it in TextMate
    * Hold down the Command key and click on the name of the file in the title bar of the TextMate window containing the file contents; a pop-up menu showing the path to the file should appear
    * Choose "Fetch Temporary Folder" from the menu -- the folder containing both the new temporary file and the file from your previous editing attempt should open in the Finder
