    Yesterday, I went through the process to check for an upgrade and download Fetch. I was running Fetch 4.0.1. The Esellerate engine come up and I went through the download process. Immediately afterward the menu selection from the menu bar became "jittery". I restarted the machine ( I'm running OS X 10.1.4 with all the updates installed). The machine wouldn't restart at all. I could hear constant attempts to access the disk. I tried powering up and holding down the option key and could see the disk as a boot choice, but got the same repeated disk access sound and couldn't boot this way either. Something was definitely corrupted. I rebooted from the OS X 10.1.2 install disk, ran the disk repair which found and fixed a couple of minor glitches, and I still couldn't bring up the machine. I reinstalled OS X and went through the full upgrade cycles to get back to 10.1.4 and I'm running fine now.

    Any chance eSellerate wiped out part of my running OS X image or was this total coincidence?

    I did a regular download of Fetch 4.0.2 via VersionTracker to do the Fetch upgrade. I'm a little leery of the built in "check for upgrade" capability after spending 3 hours getting back to normal yesterday.

    I have a 400 MHz TiG4 Powerbook with an IBM 48B FDB internal disk, 500MB RAM.

    Wow, that sounds awful. I haven't had any other reports of the Check for Upgrade feature damaging an OS X installation, but I will pass your report on to eSellerate.

    Thanks for reporting this,
