  • Thanks for sending the Fetch.log file — it looks like your copy of Fetch is missing a file, so you should download a fresh copy from our website.

  • I am about to buy a new MAC – my old one is about 5 years old, and the version of Fetch I’ve been using is 3.0.3. I see you have a really NEW one available – how easy it is to navigate, being I’m so used to 3.0.3?

  • Hi Marilyn,

    You should find it even easier to use than 3.0.3. One change you might notice is that pressing Return or Enter no longer acts like a double-click on the selected item (now it lets you rename the selected item). We made that change to be consistent with the Finder.
