    I sent some session files for Pro Tools recording software to an NT file server with Fetch 4.0.3 from a Mac G3 running OS 9.1. When I brought them back to my Mac and tried to open the session file it Pro Tools gave me this error:

    Could not complete the "open session..." command because: an assertion occured in " Sys_FileType.cpp", line 81.

    Is it possible that fetch did this and if so, how can I fix it and get my data back?

    Pro Tools is probably rejecting the files for one of two reasons:

    1) The file data has been corrupted. That could happen if you uploaded the file in Text format, or uploaded it in Raw Data format (which is correct) and then downloaded it in Text mode (which isn't). You might try downloading again in Binary mode (set the Mode pop-up to Binary) to see if it was this second problem. In general you would avoid this by having a file name suffix on your files, and associating that suffix with Binary mode in the Suffix Mapping window.

    2) The file type and creator are incorrect. You would correct that by setting up a suffix mapping (choose Suffix Mapping... from the Remote menu) to tell Fetch what type and creator to assign files with the name suffix that these files have (use the Choose Example button to get the correct type and creator information from a file that Pro Tools does open). Then try downloading again.
