I'm trying to figure out a way to download multiple files (with same name) from a SFTP server while appending the timestamp based on remote file attribute show in WINSCP. Right now, we currently have a batch script that runs every morning to GET a file. This becomes an issue over the weekend when multiple files exist on the SFTP server thus are overwritten come Monday during the the GET.
I've looked at http://winscp.net/eng/docs/script_download_timestamped_filename#using_winscp_scripting but assume such logic is impossible with a batch Windows Shell script.
Is there any way to GET a file then rename it before GETTING the next file? Please let me know if you need more information or better description. Thank you.

Yes, it won't be easy to implement what you ask for using Windows batch file.
I recommend that you use WinSCP .NET assembly, possibly from a PowerShell script:
Note that we do not provide script writing services here. Please try yourself, and ask specific questions.
