    I have the latest version of Fetch and recently it has started capping my upload speed. I have Frontier fios with 150/150 but can only achieve about 50mbps now. Was super fast at about 140. I didn't do anything different, it just started slowing down. As a test, I uploaded a 1 GB file with Cyberduck and it uploaded at 150, then the same file with Fetch was only 55. How can I fix this? I love Fetch and want to continue using it.

    Hi,

    Fetch doesn't cap transfer speeds, it tries to upload as fast as it can. It reports transfer speeds in bytes, while some programs use bits, which can make comparisons difficult.

    Thanks,

    HI JIm, what do you think would prevent it from going fast like it used to? Up until a week ago, I could upload a 1GB file in about 2 minutes. Now it takes about 6. With the enemy ftp software, it takes about 2. Definitely want to stick with Fetch though.

    Maybe I should do a clean uninstall of Fetch and try it again. Any tips on how I can clean out all the random files or if I drag the application icon to the trash will it get everything?

    Hi,

    I don't know why the performance would change so dramatically. Fetch creates some files in the ~/Library/Preferences folder with names that start "com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch" to store your shortcuts and preferences; you can see if removing those makes any difference, but I would be surprised.

    Thanks,
