    I'm using fetch 4.0.3

    I'm also new to Fetch.

    I'm attempting to download the entire contents of a website. There's 1GB in photos and probably another 200MB in related files.

    Twice now my router has choked during the process. (I have a 1.5MB connection to Net.)

    When I selected the "Resume Download" function, all it offers was the last file in the queue, and nothing more. I can't find an option to restart a failed download.

    On the Windows computers I use the FTP software all comes with the ability to download and IGNORE any existing files. This is a quick way to resume the sort of aborted download I've expericence.

    Is there a way in Fetch to restart a download or start a download and to skip any existing duplicate files?

    Yes, you can use the Mirror Folder... command in the Remote menu. You want to mirror the website folder on the server to a folder on your Mac; Fetch will only download the files that are newer on the server (or don't exist at all on your Mac).
