    Is there a way to find the history of all of the transfer and downloads?

    Hi Cheryl,

    As of Fetch 5.5, Fetch does keep a persistent log of transfers and other information. It isn't so user-friendly, since we created it mostly to aid us in debugging; it includes all transcript information and some debugging information. So we don't advertise it as a feature, but it is present and does include information about all transfers performed as part of the transcript information, so you might find it useful for your purposes.

    Exactly how many days of information it keeps is variable, because the log file is limited by size not time; however when the size limit is exceeded, the log file is rolled over and the old log file stored as Fetch.log.1, etc. for up to 9 archived logs.

    The Fetch.log file is stored in the ~/Library/Logs folder.

    To find the Fetch.log file:

    * Click the desktop background to select the Finder.
    * Choose "Home" from the Go menu in the Finder
    * Open the Library folder
    * Open the Logs folder
    * Find the file named "Fetch.log"

    Please let us know if you have further questions.
