Overwrite older files only on upload (4 posts)

    Pretty sure the answer's no, but is there a preference such that Fetch will overwrite only more recent files when uploading to a server?

    Hi,

    You can use the Mirror command in the Remote menu to upload a folder to the server, only uploading files that are newer than what is on the server.

    Thanks,

    Can this (overwrite) be done for a single file, not a folder? My IP camera sends an image every few minutes to a folder on my Fetch account. I can't select the file name so it's different each time an image is sent (so they just collect in a folder and take up room on my account). I would like to be able to overwrite the old image with the new image and somehow have a link to the image on my web page.

    Hi rFarrar,

    You could run an AppleScript to regularly rename the newest file to a fixed file name, so the files would not pile up and your web page could always show the newest image. I'll follow up with you by email.

    Thanks,
