Topic "Synchronise script won't get new files"

I've been going through the documentation on how to run a synchronise script and can't seem to get it to actually download anything.

I have an SFTP directory which gets populated from another source, I'd like to download all new files to a local directory on a daily basis. If a file is deleted on the remote directory I'd like this to be automatically deleted from the local directory.

I've created a session which specifies the following:

    Host name
    user name
    password
    file protocol (SFTP)
    remote directory
    local directory


I've then created a .bat script with the following:

Code:
winscp.com /script=sync.txt /defaults


This calls the following script:

Code:
option batch abort
option confirm off
option reconnecttime 30
open <session>
option transfer binary
synchronize local -delete
close
exit


The script successfully opens the session and connects to the host. The correct directories are listed, however nothing is transferred.

If I create a new file or folder in the local directory, these are deleted when the script is run so I can tell at least some of the settings are working OK.

If I open the session and run a sync command through the GUI it works OK so I have no idea why it's not working in the script.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

OK - Having read through some of the other threads I did as was suggested earlier and added...

lls I:\Downloads\synctest\
ls /mnt/sdg1/files/synctest/
synchronize local -mirror -delete -nopermissions I:\Downloads\synctest\ /mnt/sdg1/files/synctest/

... to my code. Listing the command prompt output below:

Here's the relevant log output for the sync process:

If I compare this to the log output for a manual sync using the GUI, it's very different:

Again, any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm currently out of ideas.

I have a feeling this may be down to being able to deselect the Existing files only checkbox in the manual sync dialogue.

Are there any commands which allow all files to be synced when using an automated script?

Scripting picks up whatever settings from the GUI. So configure it in the GUI before running the script.
