    How do I set the destination of the "Get" files? I did this before and the default dialog asked to set the destination folder. but the last time it didn't ask and it overwrote and existing website download that took 4 hours! UGH.

    Please help. How can I confirm the destination and check? is there a process dialog box. How can't afford to have this happen again.

    To set the download folder:

    1. Choose Preferences from the Fetch menu
    2. Click on the Download tab
    3. Set the "Save downloaded files in:" menu to the folder you want.

    If you don't want Fetch to ever overwrite existing files when it downloads, uncheck the "Overwrite files with conflicting names" box as well.
