    I'm new to the fetch scene.
    I am trying to "get" an .hqx file.
    I am receiving the error "BinHex4 file incomplete turn off BinHex4 in preferences dialog".
    When I turn it off and try to "get" it again I can download everything but when it expands with stuffit I receive the errror "Decoding incomplete because file appears to be shorter then expected".

    Is the file that I am trying to download an incomplete file? Is the issue with the file?

    Please advise. Thanks!

    It sure sounds that way. You can use the View Text File command to view the file in Fetch. Proper BinHex files should have a colon character as the last character of the last line of data. If the file does not have that it's incomplete.
