    I am having problems with files starting with a period i.e. .htaccess files.

    I have the Omit file names beginning with a period deselected in the prefs/misc

    Any suggestions?

    Some servers won't show dot files unless the FTP client sends a non-standard command. You can have Fetch 4.0 send that command (LIST -al) to work around this problem. To do that, run the SetSecretOptions script in the Fetch Example Scripts folder and turn on the "Sending LIST -al to UNIX servers" option.
