    I am attempting to connect to my recent connections and when I select the site, I receive the following message:
    "If you do not disconnect, your password will be sent over the network in the clear."
    Why am I getting this message????
    I had been connecting in the past without issue.

    It sounds like the server has changed its security policies. I would do one of two things:

    1) Uncheck "Warn before sending password insecurity" in the Security section of Fetch Preferences
    2) Ask your server administrator if they support SFTP or FTP with TLS/SSL (also known as FTPS), which offer better security
