    I'm a software developer (most java) working on a java-based "updater" application for a a very frequently updated and downloaded application.

    The application consists of 1700eparate files (150MB total), which I have zipped individually (using java), and I'd like to upload to various mirrors.

    I have not yet tried fetch 4.0.3, but 3 or 4 attempts using fetch 4.0.2 failed part way through, leaving me not knowing what made it and what didn't... (drag and drop folder to fetch window, os x 10.2.6, airport, DSL)

    I was able, however to "zip" these zips into one big file and upload that fine, but that requires server side code to be able to extract the zips ...

    Is there any way to tell fetch to "resume" a failed upload, or do you have any other suggestions?

    Thanks for any help - great product that I rely on daily!

    There's no way to resume the upload of an individual file, but you could try using the Mirror Folder... command to only upload files that aren't already on the server. The one thing to be careful of is that a partially-uploaded file will look newer than what's on your Mac, so it won't be re-uploaded by the Mirror Folder command. So after a failed upload you'll want to delete any partial upload before giving the Mirror Folder command again.

    Thanks for the "mirror command" tip ... I had never used it before.

    I just used it to upload 1700ndividual files with 4.0.3 and it appears to have worked great (no errors like I was getting before) ...

    Thanks again,
    Dave :-)
