How to set Fetch so that it overwrites 'all' files, not just those being uploaded (3 posts)

    I've noticed that Fetch doesn't overwrite or delete files that aren't being uploaded. For example, if you upload a blank directory to the server, while the directory itself is overwritten, the contents inside the directory at the server remain even though the directory was replaced as a blank directory. Shouldn't the blank directory eliminate any files inside it at the server?

    That's correct, Fetch merges uploaded folders with the folders that are already on the server. To replace the existing folders completely you would need to either delete them manually before uploading, or use the Mirror Folder command with the Delete stray items at destination option checked.
