I am using this script to transfer a file and delete the source file.
The result is a perfect tranfer, but removing the source doen't work.
After checking the forum, I tryed using the latest version, checking the user (root) and the permissions, using "get -delete" al without succes.
Checking the log (attached) it seems as if after the succesfull transfer, winspc closes, discarting any statements after the "get". I tried adding a "echo" or even repeating the same "get" statement, they don't show in the log.

Executing "rm *txt" from the command line works perfect!

What am I missing? Thanks for helping!!

You are obviously executing a different script than the one you have posted.
