    Is there a way to search files on Fetch?

    Hi Grace,

    You can look for files in the current file list (the files in the folder you're currently looking at) by going to the Edit menu and choosing Find.

    However, that will not look for the files in subfolders or elsewhere on the server - just the current folder.

    Unfortunately, there's no way to use Fetch to search all the folders on a server for a file (that's is because there is no support for doing so in FTP, the language Fetch uses to talk to servers).

    If you contact the company or people who run the server, they may be able to tell you some way or tool to use to search for files on the server.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.
