Fetch upload/download scheduler? (2 posts)

    Is there a script or preference that will allow me to schedule a time to download or upload files? I have satellite broadband and get penalized if I don't transfer large files (over 500MB or larger) between midnight and 3am...I am tired of staying up late and wondered if this is possible?
    I have not used scripts before, so if there is one available, can someone point me to a tutorial about installing them?

    While Fetch does not have a built-in scheduler, you can use iCal (part of Mac OS X) along with Fetch's Mirror command or Automator support to automatically upload or download files at a specified time.

    See the Scheduling automatic transfers with iCal topic in Fetch Help (or just click the link here) for a tutorial on how to set this up, and let us know if you have any further questions.
