New to fetch question about mirroring/logging what is put up (2 posts)

    Hi there,

    I'm a pretty new and basic user of Fetch. Have a site that we upload stuff to. So every time we do something new I just drag and drop to the folders. All works fantastically.

    Now we have a second site, which is almost a parallel of the first, but not quite. I want to be able to either mirror certain folders in Site A, so that when i upload stuff, it will be automatically done for site B, or if that isn't possible then to just be able to trace what each file was and where I put it, so I can update site A, then logout of that, login to site B and manually update it.

    The log desire comes from multiple people adding bits to Site A, and not keeping track of them, so was hoping there was some part of the program that could monitor what has been put online daily and the folders each new file is put in.

    Sorry if this is a really stupid question! Like I say I'm only just starting out at this so trying to learn the ropes!

    You can use the Mirror command (in the Remote menu) to mirror a folder on site A to a folder on site B. Fetch will transfer any files that are newer on site A (or aren't on site B at all) from A to B. You can save a mirror command as a document, so while it won't happen automatically, it's just a matter of opening that document.

    Does that sound useful? You can read more about the Mirror command at
