Error: The system cannot find the path specified (6 posts)

    I'm trying to upload a group of JPG files to Fetch and 20 of the 23 sets worked fine. I did two of the final five this morning, but when I started the third, it keeps telling me it can't put the file because "The system cannot find the path specified." All the files are the same file type in the same location as the others, just a different subfolder for this particular grouping. The permissions on the subfolder are the same as the other subfolders and their contents, and the file specs are the same as the JPGs in the other subfolders. I've rebooted Fetch, remounted the server the subfolders are located on and copied the subfolder's contents to my desktop to try copying them from there. I'm running Fetch 4.0.3 on an Intel iMac running Leopard.

    Hi,

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

    * Quit Fetch.
    * Open Fetch again.
    * Connect to your server.
    * Try uploading the problem JPG file or set of files again.
    * After you receive the error, go to the Window menu, and choose Fetch Transcript.
    * Copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message.

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

    Thanks,

    Thanks. I figured it out after I posted - there was a space at the end of the file names.

    Hi,

    Okay, we're glad you figured it out, thanks for letting us know. Yes, some servers don't like spaces at the end of flienames - but unfortunately they rarely tell you that's the problem.

    Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

    Best,

    This is probably a Unix question.

    I can make a connection to my server, but end up in the wrong folder. I think what I am looking for is a way to go up and then down.

    Where I want ro go is /var/www/html/

    Where I get taken to is /home/myusername

    I assume this is simple.

    Hi Tedg,

    If you leave the "Initial folder" field of the Fetch New Connection dialog blank, which folder you end up when you connect to your server is up to the server; that is not a function of Fetch.

    So, if you always want to go to a different folder when you connect, you can enter it in the New Connection dialog in the "Initial folder" field. (Click the disclosure button - the blue rectangle with a triangle in it in the lower left of the New Connection dialog - to find the Initial folder field.) You can create a shortcut that specifies an Initial folder as part of the shortcut.

    You can go "up" a folder by going to the Go menu, and choosing Parent Folder.

    You can do "down" by double-clicking on a folder in the Fetch file list.

    You can go to an arbitrary path by going to the Go menu, and choosing "Go to Folder" and entering the path you want to go to.

    See the changing folders help topic for other ways to change folders in Fetch.

    And please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks,
